Statue of Limitation Changes Due to COVID-19

On March 27, 2020, Ohio Governor DeWine signed into law House Bill 197, which tolls the statute of limitations for any administrative action or proceeding set to expire between March 9, 2020, and July 30, 2020. The bill applies retroactively to the date of the emergency declared by Executive Order 2020-01D, issued on March 9, 2020, and expires on the date the period of emergency ends or July 30, 2020, whichever is sooner.

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 compensation benefit proportionate to their reduced hours.
