03.28.2020

Good Saturday afternoon,

I just wanted to reach out with one update. In today’s news conference, Lt. Governor Husted asked for continued patience with the unemployment website. They have recently engaged the private sector to fortify the website capabilities. Additionally, they have extended phone hours. Current hours are M-F 7 a.m. to 7p.m. and Saturday 9a.m. to 1:00 p.m. They ask that you remember that eligibility is retroactive. Your employees will be paid back to the first date of eligible unemployment.

Enforcement of the Section 18 safe workplace order will continue to be enforced. They are actively checking government contractors as well as private sector businesses.

As new updates become available, I will pass those along.

Lt. Governor Husted will leave us with our quote of the day. “By our actions, we can be part of the solution.”

Make it a great Saturday,

Julie
