The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) has announced a new program called Protecting Ohio’s Workforce – We’ve Got You Covered. BWC’s program is providing face coverings free of charge to public employers who are in good standing and report payroll to BWC.
On April 11, the Board of Directors for the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) voted to return up to $1.6 billion to Ohio employers this spring in an effort to ease the economic impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on Ohio’s economy and business community.
The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) has, like most other governmental offices, required its staff to telework while continuing business operations. However, since many of BWC’s field operations involve face-to-face meetings or hearings, their processes and procedures have been modified. Most matters have been extended until April 30, 2020.
