OMA Testifies in Support of Unemployment Bill to Limit Abuse

This week the OMA testified in support of Senate Bill 282 before the Senate Insurance and Financial Institutions Committee. The bill would require the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) to create an online process whereby employers could report recipients of unemployment benefits who have potentially failed to meet the nonmonetary requirements of benefit eligibility. The bill would require timely review of filed complaints.

As manufacturers continue to struggle to fill available jobs, this is a simple and streamlined way to communicate issues to ODJFS in an effort to return workers to available jobs. 9/3/2020
