On May 28, the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) announced it would defer the due date for June, July and August premium installments until September 1. According to Governor Mike DeWine, the initiative, which is part of the state’s Responsible RestartOhio Plan, is designed to allow businesses to continue focusing on the safety and well-being of employees and customers. The deferral follows other initiatives by the Agency to support Ohio employers. In March, the Ohio BWC announced a deferral of March, April and May premium installments to June 1, and in April, the Agency provided $1.6 billion in dividend payments to the state’s employers. In addition, the Agency is maintaining a list of Frequently Asked Questions relating to COVID-19 on its website at https://www.bwc.ohio.gov/downloads/blankpdf/COVID-19-BWCFAQs.pdf.
