2 Answers from Attorneys
Ohio law requires that employers provide workers compensation benefits to anyone who is working for them-even if they are being paid under the table.
If you were injured on the job, you have a right to claim your benefits. That may be true even if your boss did not pay into the fund as he was supposed to do.
You should talk directly to an attorney. Most attorneys will handle these types of cases on a contingency basis. That means that you do not have to pay any money up front.
