Why your employer might believe you're lying about an injury

Workers' compensation is supposed to be a no-hassle method of getting your medical care covered and your bills paid while you're unable to work due to a job-related injury or illness. In fact, the program is designed to be less expensive and easier for employers as well as injured employees.

Understanding the coming-and-going rule

As you know, workers' compensation benefits can compensate you for lost wages, medical expenses and other losses pertaining to an injury or illness that occurred on the job, but what if you suffered an injury away from work or after hours while performing duties that were job-related? Ohio workers should understand how workers' compensation applies to off-the-clock accidents, as well as the coming-and-going rule.

What should employees know about Ohio's medical marijuana law?

This is the year that medical marijuana makes its debut in Ohio. For employees, that means it's time to brush up on how that affects their work environment and learn what it means for any workers' compensation claims.

Avoiding injuries on a construction site in Ohio

Construction sites are found all over the state of Ohio. They can be incredibly safe and dangerous all at the same time. Construction workers have a lot of responsibility if they want to stay safe while on the job. The owner of the site and the manager of the site are also responsible for keeping it safe from accidents that can injure or kill workers.

Can you fight a 'light-duty' assignment after a work injury?

Employers naturally want to get injured workers back on the job as quickly as possible - but going back to work on a light-duty assignment isn't always the best thing for your body if you happen to be that injured worker.
