The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS) has the SharedWork Ohio Program, a voluntary layoff aversion program. It allows workers to remain employed and employers to retain trained staff during times of reduced business activity.
Ohio employers may apply if they meet the following criteria:
Have at least two affected employees that do not work on a seasonal, temporary or intermittent basis;
Are current on all Ohio unemployment insurance reporting, contributions, reimbursements, interest and penalties due;
Agree to the program requirements.
More information on SharedWork Ohio, including employer FAQ, can be found on their website.
