Are elected officials covered “employees” under the fund?

Elected officials were initially excluded from coverage under the workers’ compensation law because they occupied a status similar to that of employers. However, an amendment to Ohio Revised Code § 4123.01(A)(1), effective since 1959, enables elected officials to be covered as employees under the workers’ compensation law.
