Ohio Unemployment Compensation New Guideline

The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS) is notifying current and past recipients of unemployment compensation, the regular requirement to apply for 2 jobs per week is staying the same, except that recipients of unemployment compensation must keep a written record of actions taken including employer’s name and address, method of applying for work, type of work sought, dates of contact and the outcome of each contact. When they file each week for their weekly check, there will be new fields on the weekly claim form requiring entry of weekly job contact information. The Agency is informing unemployment compensation recipients that they are now conducting more frequent audits, and the written records you are required to keep may have to be submitted.
