Unlike many states, Ohio has announced that they will not follow a new federal option allowing states to extend unemployment insurance to workers who lose pay because of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) but are usually ineligible for such benefits. Ohio has answered frequently asked questions here.

The federal government allowed more flexibility to states to grant unemployment benefits to those whose employment situation is affected by COVID-19. (See guideline here). This includes:

1) An employer temporarily ceases operations due to COVID-19, preventing employees from coming to work;

(2) An individual is quarantined with the expectation of returning to work after the quarantine is over; and 

(3) An individual leaves employment due to a risk of exposure or infection or to care for a family member. In addition, federal law does not require an employee to quit in order to receive benefits due to the impact of COVID-19.

This assistance is to help workers who are often low-wage earners with no paid sick days or other leave to cover them if they are affected by COVID-19. These include restaurant workers, who may lose hours as many public events are canceled to slow the spread of COVID-19, or a home health aide, who has to be quarantined.

Many low-wage and part-time workers in Ohio wouldn’t qualify for unemployment insurance without the guidance. To be eligible, a worker must average $269 a week over at least 20 weeks. For example, a worker making $10 an hour but only working 25 hours per week would not be eligible for unemployment insurance.
