Shared Work Ohio Program
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has a program called SharedWork Ohio.
SharedWork Ohio is a voluntary layoff aversion program. It allows workers to remain employed and employers to retain trained staff during times of reduced business activity. Under a SharedWork Ohio plan, 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 (ODJFS) provides eligible individuals an unemployment benefit proportionate to their reduced hours.
If an employee participates in the SharedWork Ohio program they will qualify for the extra $600 in unemployment benefits per week through July 2020.
