Ohio WC Terms: Temporary Total (TT)

Temporary Total (TT)

R.C. 4123.56(A) provides temporary total compensation (TT) for the injured worker's loss of earnings while healing from an injury. An injured worker who cannot perform the work they were doing when injured can receive temporary total, as long as they have not abandoned their employment and one of the conditions for terminating temporary total does not exist.

The statute provides for termination of temporary total in any of the following situations:

  1. the employee has returned to work;
  2. the employee's physician has made a written statement that the employee can return to the former position of employment;
  3. employment within the employee's physical capabilities is made available; or
  4. the employee reaches maximum medical improvement.

Our rate chart lists the maximum and minimum rates for temporary total awards from 1987 to the present.
