The Industrial Commission is Currently Reviewing the Permanent Total Disability Rule

The following information is being provided pursuant to the requirements of EO 2011-01K and Senate Bill 2 of the 129th General Assembly, which requires state agencies, including the Ohio Industrial Commission, to draft rules in collaboration with stakeholders, assess and justify any adverse impact on the business community (as defined by SB2), and provide opportunity for the affected public to provide input on the rules.

The Industrial Commission is reviewing Ohio Adm. Code 4121-3-34.

As part of this review, the Industrial Commission has initially determined that it should amend 4121-3-34 to reflect changes in the subject area covered by the rule.

The Industrial Commission welcomes comments regarding the proposed changes to the Permanent Total Disability rule.
