The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) has taken down its unemployment insurance fraud reporting web page. This after the agency’s site was attacked by an anonymous hacker who disagreed with allowing employers to report those who refused to return to work.
On its FAQ page for employers, ODJFS says the agency’s process for determining whether to deny unemployment benefits for a refusal to return to work existed prior to the pandemic.
ODJFS “encourages employers to engage in dialogue with an employee who expresses reluctance to return to work about the measures that employers are taking to help employees feel safe.” If that approach is unsuccessful, employers may report eligibility concerns to ODJFS using this email address. 5/27/2020
