Workers' Compensation Overview
Ohio’s workers’ compensation system helps injured workers and employers cope with workplace injuries

BWC pays medical benefits and lost wages to employees who are injured or contract an occupational disease on the job. We also pay death benefits to survivors when a death results from a work-related injury or disease.

Ohio law requires employers to obtain workers' compensation insurance for all employees. As such, we define Ohio employers as either state-fund or self-insuring.
