We all know that the early bird gets the worm. In Ohio, the early bird might also get an Ohio workers’ compensation credit. Ohio employers must take action to receive their portion of the $1.2 billion premium credit that the BWC will issue this summer as part of the BWC’s switch to prospective billing. Employers looking to participate in the credit and who are not up to date on their payments must report unreported payroll for currently lapsed periods and pay any outstanding premium, late fees and penalties for the assessed premium (or request a payment plan for these amounts that cannot be paid in full). But don’t wait. Employers have to complete these tasks by July 1, 2015, in order to be eligible for the credit.
