    It seems to me that BWC is more concerned with the people that are working and receiving and not the ones who are receiving and are not disabled. I watch a neighbor thats been on and off Works comp for over 30 years. He been a one man lawn crew for 10 acres and a one man maintenance crew for 4 homes. Hes been on the roof doing repairs and putting TV antenna atop a 30 foot power pole. Running chain saw up in a tree and doing all day long carpentry jobs like a young man. Its stealing our tax dollars either way.Someone should do something about people who are just lazy and want free money.

    I’d like to report a retail outlet in major violations of Covid-19 rules. The Speedway convenience store on Rt#125 in Withamsville, Cincinnati. They have a very small sign on the door re: masks, allow anyone to enter without masks, and even the clerks don’t wear masks or wear them improperly. This a super-speader hot spot that needs to be attended to.

      The Retail Compliance Unit is working on behalf of the Ohio Department of Health. Please direct any mask compliance complaints or questions to the Ohio Department of Health Call Center at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). Thank you.

    I too would like to know how someone gets away with a fraudulent claim and collects over $1,000,000 in salary, benefits and medical care yet is not mentioned on your site or in the media. Apparently it is okay to steal from Franklin County BWC funds.
