Do I need to have a Ohio workers' compensation policy?
Asked on 3/27/2009
If you have any employees, you must have an active workers compensation policy to insure coverage for those employees against a workplace injury. ORC 4123.01 details the requirements for workers compensation coverage for Ohio employers.

If you log into your account, your account information page will show what meetings you are registered for and what meeting you have attended including your dues payments and semi-annual reports.
