BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Ohio public employers’ comp rates drop in 2024

rates fall

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation on Thursday announced that public employers will pay an average of 3.9% less in workers compensation retroactive Jan. 1.

The rate reduction was made possible by declining injury claims and relatively low medical inflation costs by Ohio’s counties, cities, public schools and other public taxing districts, according to a statement.

Since 2011, the overall reduction in public employers’ rates is 57.2%, according to the BWC.
