COLUMBUS, Ohio - Many employers across Ohio stand to get some money back through workers' comp rebates.
The head of the state Bureau of Worker's Compensation is proposing a billion dollars in rebates. Sarah Morrison says that refund comes at the urging of the Governor.
"Employers in good standing with the Bureau of Worker's Compensation can expect rebates of up to two-thirds of their annual premium for the 2016 policy period," Morrison says.
That announcement was made Monday in downtown Columbus. It would affect 200,000 employers, and applies to those who paid comp premiums for the year ending June 2016. The worker's comp board must approve the rebates. They're expected to do that this week.
