Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the Ohio BWC’s recent announcement that its Board will be considering Governor Mike DeWine’s proposal to send Ohio employers up to $1.5 billion in additional dividends to ease the impact of COVID-19.
The BWC noted that if approved, the dividend would be the second of that magnitude this year, the third since 2019, and would equal 100% of the premium employers paid in policy year 2019. The BWC Board also heard and approved the Governor’s request to send another round of face coverings to employers to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The BWC has shipped 20.6 million masks to employers since late May, and in the fall will begin sending approximately 23 million more masks to employers, who won’t be billed for them.
