Commissioner Bios

At the Ohio Industrial Commission (IC), a three-member Commission is responsible for handling disputes involving industrial injuries that result from working.

Three commissioners, who are appointed by the governor, lead the IC. Each commissioner must have at least six years’ experience in workers' compensation and at least one member must be licensed to practice law in Ohio.

By reason of previous vocation, employment or affiliation, one member represents employees, one represents employers, and one represents the public. Each commissioner serves a six-year term.

The chairperson is the head of all administrative functions at the agency and the executive director manages the agency’s day-to-day operations.
