Ohio Workers’ Compensation and Unemployment: Who Do I Call? Where Do I Begin?


If your employee is injured or contracts an occupational disease while on the job, it’s important to know what to do. The employee involved can receive medical benefits and lost wages from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. As a business leader or HR professional, you’ll want to get your employee the help they need to get back to work as quickly and safely as possible.
Join ERC’s Preferred Partner, Sedgwick, as they cover the basics of Ohio workers’ compensation, unemployment, and managed care organizations (MCO). Participants will learn about the parties that are involved and what each does in the process. 

If you are an Ohio, state-funded employer for workers’ compensation, you must have a managed care organization (MCO). We’ll discuss what your MCO does, best practices, and how your MCO can assist in returning your employee back to work. 

What You’ll Learn:

  • Steps you need to take with workers’ compensation claims
  • The roles and responsibilities of a third party administrator
  • How unemployment works and its impact on your business
  • Unemployment fraud
