Ohio Supreme Court Upholds Employer’s Liability Ruling

Earlier this year, the Ohio Supreme Court heard Hoyle v. DJT Enterprises and upheld its 2010 ruling on employer’s liability. The ruling affirmed that in order for plaintiffs to recover damages in a civil suit that is based on an employment intentional tort, they must prove that the employer acted with deliberate intent to cause injury, disease or death.

This decision, which recognizes worker’s compensation as the remedy for employment-related injuries, keeps Ohio in line with the majority of states in the U.S.
