Ohio: Bartering Scenario at Horse Racing Track Disqualifies Claimant from PTD Benefits

September 14, 2019 (1 min read)

Finding that there was sufficient evidence to support a decision by the Ohio Industrial Commission that an injured worker had, without advising the Commission or the employer, knowingly engaged in sustained remunerative employment in the form of exchanging horse-training and grooming services for housing and feeding charges at the stable that sheltered the worker’s horses, the Supreme Court of Ohio affirmed a decision terminating the worker’s PTD benefits. The Supreme Court disagreed, however, with the Commission’s choice of the disqualifying date and remanded the case for further determinations.
