On June 16, 2020, Governor Mike DeWine signed House Bill 81 (H.B. 81) into law, which made significant changes to Ohio’s Workers’ Compensation law. H.B. 81 amends the doctrine of voluntary abandonment of a claim, the statute of limitation on filing a Violation of a Specific Safety Requirement (VSSR), a state fund employer’s settlement authority, and the statute of limitation on a claim among other changes. Attorneys Mark Barnes and Robert Solt, IV review the changes made to the workers’ compensation system by H.B. 81, and answer questions regarding the same, which became effective, in part, September 15, 2020.
