All employees paid through the ABX Air
payroll system are covered by the company's Workers’ Compensation program. The
intent of the Workers’ Compensation program is to provide compensation to an
employee who is off work due to a work-related injury or illness.
|Within Ohio, ABX Air self-insures its Workers’ Compensation obligations.
This means the company pays compensation and benefits directly to the injured

administers and regulates guidelines for injured workers and employers. This
