The State of Ohio is making changes to the unemployment system to help mitigate the impacts on individuals and businesses that are affected by quarantines, closures and reductions in work hours. The state will provide relief to applicants who are not offered paid leave through their job, as well as those who have been quarantined by a medical professional, their employer, or whose employers must temporarily close. Those who apply for unemployment under these circumstances will be exempt from the requirement that they be actively seeking work. See details and Q&A provided by CareWorks

Also in response to COVID-19, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) is making temporary policy changes that will allow flexibility in the provision of care to injured workers, including work at home situations. These changes include telemedicine, telephone services, and waiver of some prior authorization requirements. See more info here.

SharedWork - Information from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services

Under SharedWork Ohio, the participating employer reduces affected employees’ hours in a uniform manner. The participating employee works the reduced hours each week, and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services provides eligible individuals an unemployment benefit proportionate to their reduced hours. For the duration of the pandemic, ODJFS is committed to reviewing and responding to all SharedWork Ohio applications within one week of receipt.
