New Way to Report Workers Who Refuse Work

As Ohio’s labor shortage continues to worsen, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted this week announced a new form to make it easier for employers to report workers who refuse work while continuing to collect unemployment benefits. (Here are details from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Employers may also call 1-877-644-6562.)

Beginning Sunday, May 23, all unemployed Ohioans will be required to actively search for a job in order to be eligible for continued unemployment compensation. 5/18/2021
