Section 4127.03 | Compensation of work-relief employee or dependents of decedent.


Every work-relief employee who sustains an injury and the dependents of such as are killed, in the course of and arising out of employment, wheresoever such injury or death occurs, except when such injury or death is caused by willful misconduct or intent to bring about such injury or death, or when the use of intoxicating liquors or drugs is the proximate cause of such injury or death, is entitled to receive out of the public work-relief employees' compensation fund, compensation, death benefits, medical, nurse, and hospital services, medicine, and funeral expenses, for loss sustained on account of such injury or death, as is provided for by Chapter 4123. of the Revised Code.

Except as provided in section 4127.06 of the Revised Code, no compensation shall be paid from the work-relief employees' compensation fund for or on account of any temporary disability or partial disability; except that in the cases included in the schedule of loss of specific members or sight, set forth in section 4123.57 of the Revised Code, the disability is deemed to continue for the periods mentioned for each of such cases in that section. In cases where the injury results in the total or partial loss of use of any such member, the disability is deemed to continue for such proportion of the period fixed for the total loss of a member as the administrator of workers' compensation finds that the actual physical disability bears to the total loss of such members.

All compensation payable under this chapter shall be paid on the basis of computation provided for in this chapter.
