Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s Board of Directors approves $1.6 billion dividend for Ohio employers

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s Board of Directors approved to send up to $1.6 billion to Ohio employers this spring to ease the economic impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on Ohio’s economy and business community.

The Board met in a virtual emergency session in response to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s call for state agencies to do all they can to help the state’s business community withstand COVID-19’s challenges, which include temporary business closings, stay-at-home orders, and a record number of Ohioans applying for unemployment assistance.
