Employment and Training Administration, Labor.
This notice announces a change in benefit period eligibility under the EB program for Ohio.
The following change has occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding the State's EB status:
- Ohio has modified its law by adding a total unemployment rate (TUR) trigger retroactive to February 22, 2009. As a result, Ohio has retroactively triggered “on” to a high unemployment period (HUP) for weeks of unemployment beginning March 15, 2009, and eligible unemployed workers will be able to collect up to an additional 20 weeks of unemployment insurance benefits.
Information for Claimants
The duration of benefits payable in the EB Program, and the terms and conditions on which they are payable, are governed by the Federal-State Extended Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970, as amended, and the operating instructions issued to the states by the U.S. Department of Labor. In the case of a state beginning an HUP, the State Workforce Agency will furnish a written notice of potential entitlement to each individual who may be eligible for increased benefits due to the HUP (20 CFR 615.13(c)(1)). Persons who wish to inquire about their rights under the program should contact their State Workforce Agency.Start Further Info
