Many businesses across Ohio started working again on Monday. The Ohio Department of Job and Family is asking firms to report workers who refuse to return to work.
The main focus now is safety at work. This is the new normal now, and many people are concerned about their health.
The Department announced that Ohio law forbids people from receiving unemployment benefits if they refuse to accept employment offers or quit without good reason. The Department says that employers need to let them know if an employee refuses to return to work; ODJFS will determine if they are still eligible for unemployment. For many families across Ohio, this is another obstacle they will have to deal with.
And while Covid-19 is a real danger for any person and might not be seen as a typical injury at work or illness that you got because of the danger of your profession, you should still be careful.
Both workers and employers must do their best to remain protected and safe.
A workplace injury is any harm you got while doing your job at your workplace, for which you had to seek medical help and go through a recovery process.
If this has happened to you, you ought to inform your employer immediately and tell your doctor that your injury occurred at your workplace so that they would send the bills to your company.
And while most companies have no issues to pay their workers a worker’s compensation, there are cases where the company might deny such a claim.
If that is the case with you, it is time to consult a worker’s compensation attorney.
