Kasich proposes more workers' comp rebates



Published: Wed, August 13, 2014 @ 2:25 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Ohio private businesses and public offices would see another $1 billion in workers’ compensation rebates in comings months, under a proposal Gov. John Kasich’s administration.

If OK’d by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation board, it would mark the second billion-dollar-rebate year, with checks expected to be sent to recipients in October.

Additional funds will be used to provide grants to improve workplace safety, train firefighters and increase health and wellness programming.

“To the employers across Ohio, you’ve got a big chunk of money coming back to you,” Kasich said today. “Some will be smaller, some will be larger. Local governments will get money back, and it’s always great to be in a government that can respond and help the folks we were elected to serve.”

Rebates to the employers that are forced to pay into the State Run Monopoly is the least to the Gov. can do to ease the pain of being an OHIO employer.
The lawyers are the only ones reaping benefits in OHIO when it comes to the BWC . Not the employers or injured workers.
By far and away the Best Governor that OHIO has seen in decades!!
Definitely Presidential material.

Let's just eliminate workers comp altogether and take workplace injuries to the court system. Let's have the employees sue the employers for damages. Oops, I forgot, that's why that system was created. I believe the employers of the time DEMANDED it.

Not true unpc , Again, its all about lawyers feeding at the State run fund trough. Employers should have the option to opt out of the State mandated monopoly and go into the private market.
Then fake your back injury and see what happens!!
The Gov. knows that this is true. That is why he is giving the money back to it's rightful owners.

First, I see the first of the monthers minus a few are here in strength. But if KaKasich is pushing it, it's bad for working Ohioans. He's never looked out for the.working man, not at Lehman Brothers not pushing SB5. If he's pushing it we are
getting screwed and some bodies getting paid.

If Kasich announced tomorrow that he was going to use the savings from Workers Compensation to pass out $100 bills to all who refuse to work, then the left wingers would have no problem with this.

Get a job first, then comment. Idiot sits on here all day long complaining about mooches. And all the while this deadbeat is listening for the mailman. Typical reSCUMlican. Like Ron Paul calling for the end of social security while at the same time he's collecting it. Typical.

It's absolutely true Samlam. Workers Comp is an insurance policy for employers. Imagine if you had no auto insurance and were at fault for injury or death to another motorist. Could you afford to pay an amount awarded by the court or jury? P.S. All back injuries are not fake. Pray you never get one.
