Workers' Compensation

Ohio workers' compensation system helps employers.

The Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) pays medical benefits and lost wages to employees who are injured or contract an occupational disease on the job. BWC also pays death benefits to survivors when a death results from a work-related injury or disease.

In Ohio, all employers with one or more employees must, by law, have workers' compensation coverage.
