In Lawrence v. City of Youngstown, Supreme Court Case No. 20120Ohio-4247 (September 20, 2012), the Ohio Supreme Court recently resolved a longstanding dispute among the Ohio district courts of appeals as to when an employee is required to deliver a 90-day notice of workers' compensation retaliation letter to an employer to comply with R.C. 4123.90. Prior to this decision, some courts held that the notice letter must be delivered to the employer within 90 days after the date of discharge. Other courts held that the notice letter must be delivered within 90 days after the employee receives notice of his discharge.
