Workers’ Compensation is a no fault insurance system that provides for the payment of medical services, lost wages and other benefits when an employee:
- suffers an injury;
- develops an occupational illness; and/or
- dies from an incident arising out of or in the course of employment.
There is no cost to employees for coverage; and employees receive benefits if their claim meets the requirements established by Ohio Revised Code.

The Hamilton County Workers' Compensation Handbook has been compiled as a resource for county employees; but it is not meant to be an exhaustive guide to workers' compensation procedures. The Workers' Compensation program was established and is governed by Ohio Revised Code (Section 4123.01) . Ohio Revised Code and Hamilton County Policy prevail in the event of conflicts in this handbook.
