Over 200K Ohio businesses and local governments are receiving rebate checks from the Bureau of Workers' Compensation this month. The rebates, announced earlier this year, represent approximately 56% of the amount businesses were billed for Workers' Compensation premiums last year. The rebates are being made possible thanks to safer workplaces, solid investment returns and BWC management.
The Bureau is also tripling the amount of grants it makes available to help organizations fund projects that help workplaces operate more safely - increasing from $5 million to $15 million. Additionally, the BWC will increase the employer match from 2:1 to 3:1, and review the moratorium list of previously prohibited items considered for grants.
