WorkCompRecap: Settling Up!

Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the Ohio BWC’s recent announcement that it has reached an agreement in principle to settle the San Allen case, a class action lawsuit filed in 2007 against the State of Ohio over the BWC’s pricing policies in place from 2001-2008.

Details of the settlement include the creation of $420 million fund to pay for claims to employers participating in the lawsuit, the class’ attorney fees, court costs and the costs of administering the fund, as claims would be filed with a third-party administrator appointed to manage the process. If the court provides approval of the settlement, class members will be notified and the TPA would begin processing claims in a few months.
