Ohio will be making a series of changes to the unemployment compensation system to assist workers who are displaced as a result of the coronavirus spread, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said Sunday 3/15/2020.
The changes, to be implemented through an executive order, clarify that those who are quarantined are considered to be unemployed and would not be subject to requirements that they seek work. That will also apply in cases in which companies determine they need to shut down operations. (Additional Details)
The state will also waive a one-week delay in unemployment benefits and expedite payments, Mr. Husted said. The cost will be mutualized and the state will waive penalties for individual businesses.
