Workers' Compensation

Policy Statement #2


Organized on July 20, 1994, the Mayors' Think Tank of Northeast Ohio (hereafter referred to as Mayors' Think Tank), in conjunction with the Ohio Urban University Program's Center for Public Administration and Public Policy at Kent State University, determined to conduct public policy research on current topics affecting local government. The first policy statement dealt with the impact of open records legislation on municipal entities. For the second policy statement, the mayors chose to study the impact of proposed changes in workers' compensation legislation.

Research conducted by past and present graduate students, under the direction of a public administration faculty member, as well as actual case studies submitted by various municipalities, has identified several areas which should be of concern to public employees and employers alike.
