OhioBWC - Common - Form:  (SI-28) - Introduction

Filing Of Allegation Against A Self-Insured Employer (SI-28)

Injured workers who believe their self-insuring employer is not or has not handled their claim appropriately may file a complaint using this form. For a complaint to be valid, the employer must have violated a workers' compensation rule or law. While you can fill out the SI-28 online, you must download and print the form, include any supporting documentation, and mail or fax it to the BWC self-insured department.

Note: We'll provide a copy of this allegation to the employer along with a request for a response. By law, employers must respond to the self-insured department within 14 days of the date they receive notice of the complaint.
