BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Ohio bill would exempt from comp some work-from-home injuries

Ohio capitol

An Ohio bill that would exempt from workers compensation compensability injuries that occur while working from home unless certain conditions are met was sent to a legislative committee on Tuesday.

H.B. 447, introduced Oct. 6, would make exceptions if the following conditions are met: The injury or disability arises out of the employee's employment; the employment necessarily exposes the employee to conditions that substantially contribute to the risk of injury or disability; and the injury or disability is sustained in the course of an activity undertaken by the employee for the exclusive benefit of the employer.

The bill has been sent to the House Insurance Committee.
