Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Reporting Guidelines

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) has implemented changes in payroll reporting requirements.  This is done in an effort to help ease the economic impact of the state of emergency on Ohio businesses.

The changes address the fact that many employees have been working from home or furloughed.  Additionally,  it classifies wages paid by employers under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act as not reportable to the BWC, but recommends that records are maintained based on Ohio Medicare wages, in the event of an audit.
