Significant others to be included in definition of family for state employees

Ohio Gov. Strickland

Following a public hearing this morning, Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland  took action to include significant other in the definition of an immediate family member, particularly as it applies to bereavement and family leave for state employees.

This proposed amendment to the Ohio Administrative Code will go to the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review in June for further action. It will define significant other as “one who stands in the place of a spouse and who resides with the employee.”

Thank the governor by calling (614) 466-3555.
