The BWC Lends A Hand

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s Board approves to send up to $1.6 billion dollars to Ohio employers this spring, to ease the economic impact of coronavirus on Ohio’s economy. Checks will be mailed in batches to employers later this month. The dividend is the BWC’s sixth of $1 billion dollars or more since 2013. The agency has repeatedly lowered premium rates in recent years, including a 10% cut for public employers that took effect in January and a 13% cut for private employers that begins July 1.
