If you are an alien or non-resident in Columbus you may still be covered by the Ohio workers’ compensation system

The definition of “employee” under R.C. § 4123.01(A)(1)(b) expressly includes aliens, so no colorable distinction between workers exists on the basis of the alienage or citizenship. Even when an alien is subject to deportation, he or she is an employee. The law also extends coverage to all employees performing work in Ohio, regardless of their residence or domicile.
