The Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation is the only place you can get worker’s compensation insurance in Ohio.

Your Presenter: Melony Bryant, Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation, Minority & Small Business Advocate

In January 2014, Melony Bryant joined the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) as its Minority & Small Business Advocate. She functions as a liaison between the minority and small business community for BWC. Melony has more than 20 years of workers’ compensation experience. She started her career with a premier third-party administrator in the actuarial department working as a rate analyst. Melony then moved into the client relations department as an account executive where she developed a unique ability to actively listen to and address Ohio employers’ workers’ compensation concerns.

As the Minority & Small Business Advocate, Melony assists minority and small businesses navigate through the Ohio workers’ compensation system. Receiving feedback from the minority and small employer community is just as important as employer education. BWC and Melony are committed to assist this vast group of employers to grow and strive in Ohio’s economy, acknowledging the fact that these employers have very limited resources.
