HB 380 PROPOSES TO DENY WORKERS' COMPENSATION TO UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS

In June, 2017, an attempt to amend the workers' compensation's budget bill to deny benefits to undocumented workers failed in the Ohio Senate.  

The Ohio House has reintroduced this same restriction through HB 380.  

All Ohioans can send an email through the Catholic Charities of Cleveland's Action Alert portal, or through the Ohio House e-mail site.

I am opposed to HB 380, which will deny workers' compensation to undocumented workers.  Once undocumented immigrants are here and working, their human dignity itself should guarantee basic compensation and protections for the work they provide.
