Every employer shall contribute to the public work-relief employees' compensation fund the amount of money determined by the administrator of workers' compensation, with the advice and consent of the bureau of workers' compensation board of directors. The contributions may be made in whole or in part out of any relief funds or any other available public funds, regardless of the manner in which the funds were raised. The officer of any employer having charge of the expenditures of funds for relief purposes, shall set aside and maintain as a special fund out of which contributions to the work-relief employees' compensation fund may be made, an amount equal to the percentage of the work-relief funds as the administrator determines on an actuarial basis as is reasonably necessary to cover the premium obligations of the employer. The manner of determining the contributions and classifications of employers, shall be the same as is provided in sections 4123.39 to 4123.41 and 4123.48 of the Revised Code, and such sections shall apply in so far as they are applicable to the employers, but rates of premium shall be applied to insure solvency of the public work-relief employees' compensation fund at all times.
The state relief commission or any other state agency having supervision or control of work-relief employees, either directly or through agencies, shall file reports and make payments of premiums out of any fund under its control or supervision, in the amount and manner, and at the time, as is determined by the administrator; and the furnishing of the reports and the payment of the premiums by the state agency, for work-relief employees, shall relieve the state of the obligations set forth in sections 4123.40, 4123.41, and 4123.48 of the Revised Code, with respect to contributing to the public work-relief employees' compensation fund for work-relief employees.
