In addition, some states require Ohio employers to obtain workers' compensation coverage (other than BWC's coverage) for ANY work performed there by their employees, regardless of how brief their work is in the other state.
A law enacted in 2014 granted BWC the authority to contract with an insurer licensed in other states to provide coverage to eligible Ohio employers for out-of-state exposures. By contracting with an insurer licensed in other states, BWC will be able to offer an option that ensures proper coverage, regardless of jurisdiction.
The policy offering is now available to Ohio Employers. For more information on the coverage offering, check out Ohio's Extraterritorial Coverage FAQs
