I worked as a mortician's assistant for 1 FULL SHIFT (9 am - 5pm). Helped move multiple dead bodies, and after that 1 day, decided I can't handle the stress and sight of the dead rotting bodies. And after that, they are refusing to pay me for my time, even though the director said himself... Read more »
Probably not for the emotional trauma. It sounds like what you experienced is within the parameters of your job. In other words, a jury would likely find that you should reasonably have known what to expect. If you worked and they have refused to pay you, then yes, you can sue for the one...Read more »
I am being pursued by a collection for Ohio worker's compensation taxes I owed as a small business (unincorporated) owner from 1992. My business went bankrupt in 1992, and I filed bankruptcy and my taxes were discharged (but I don't have proof worker's compensation was) in 1996.... Read more »
The BWC has an Adjudication Committee (at least they used to years ago when I worked there) where you can present your situation. It used to come up when employers were non-complying (I.e., hadn't had premiums) or coverage had lapsed for a few days and then got hit with a huge penalty. They...Read more »
The FB post was on my private personal account, it did not mention the business or anyone by name and my profile does not list where I work. I complained very angrily about her lack of enforcement on the mask mandates in the office and I did swear saying an A-hole customer was putting my health at... Read more »
Ohio is an at-will employment state, meaning you or your employer can terminate the employment relationship at any time and for any reason (as long as the reason isn’t discriminatory). It sounds like you have been fired here based on what happened. As for unemployment, your employer can challenge...Read more »
I informed payroll, HR, and management the day I got paid That my check was short. I call everyday to ask for updates everday they tell me they are working on it and have to wait for the owner's approval to give me a check. They owe me 1300$ that supposed to be on my regular paycheck.
Hi. I would wait to hear what payroll, HR, and management say. Does missing that portion of your pay put you below the minimum wage? Is the check for any overtime you worked during the pay period? If so, you may have a claim. But I would try to resolve this internally since you are still working...Read more »
Over the last few years I've been injured at work 3 times and filed a workers comp claim for 2 of them (first and third). For those 2, my boss had me cancel each claim and say that I didn't need the benefits anymore. He wanted me to do this so his number of processed claims and insurance... Read more »
Although it is not entirely clear that an agreement to waive workers compensation claims is enforceable, that is what your employer entered into. Specifically, your employer agreed to pay for (some) wages and medical costs if you did not file a...Read more »
My fiances work had a covid exposure so everyone had to get tested. They made them return to work without seeing the results and more employees tested positive thus resulting in further exposure. Is this something that can be taken to court for those who test positive because the employer did not... Read more »
First, your fiance would need to test positive for COVID, or another employee would want to sue. In every lawsuit, you must prove the four following things: duty, breach, causation, and injury. Your fiance's employer has a duty to provide him with a safe workplace. The question will become if...Read more »
The statute of limitations for Ohio Workers' compensation claims depends somewhat on when the last activity was on the claim. You should contact a licensed attorney to discuss some specifics and they can give you a better idea of whether the claim is still active or barred due to inactivity.
They could ask that, but it is suspicious behavior. That could be seen as attempting to dissuade your husband from workers' compensation, which is illegal. You and your husband should contact an employment law attorney as soon as possible and discuss your claim in more detail. Some will...Read more »
Depending on the time frame of the denial, you may be able to appeal the denial to the industrial commission. I would speak quickly with a Workers' Compensation attorney (there are many), to discuss your options. You could use personal insurance, however it can muddy the waters quite a bit...Read more »

If you do not have an attorney, I strongly recommend consulting with one prior to to trial. If there is not a doctor's deposition that testifies about the fall and the injuries it caused, there may be an issue showing what you need to in order to have your claim and the conditions you are...Read more »
Generally the only claim she has for an injury is workers compensation. However if her claim is related to the conditions of employment that may be something that is covered by the law. Suggest she contact a member of the Ohio Assn for Justice who handles Employment issues or Workers Compensation...Read more »
My question is now obwc is trying to keep 4 days of what I was recieving after all that time. My injury lawyer represented me the other day and its being brought under interlacutory advisement. Just wanted to ask another opinion before the order comes out.
You need to speak with your attorney. He or she knows the fact. I don't. It's that simple. If they want to keep 4 days because you were in jail, and that's the end of it. It may be best to let sleeping dogs lie, but you need to consult with your attorney.
