UNIT 1 OHAP UNEMPLOYMENT
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND CALL THE UNION HALL OR
HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. You must file for
unemployment online at http://unemployment.ohio.gov or if you do not have
internet access, call 1.877.644.6562. As always, if your week ending
date is not available by filing via phone or internet, you will have to call
your processing center (the number to your center can be found on most
correspondence from the ODJFS and in the unemployment handbook) and ask a LIVE
PERSON to file it for you. If you have to call your processing
center in order to file, let them know that you are filing with them because
the correct week ending dates were not available to you when trying to file via
phone or their web site. ODJFS business
hours are 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, except holidays.
B CREW (NIGHT
SHIFT): DUE TO THE VETERANS DAY HOLIDAY, THE COMPANY IS PAYING YOU SHORT WORK
WEEK FOR THE WEEK OF 11/06/2017. Please note: You must have worked the
prior week or had 40 or more compensated or available hours in order to be
eligible for short work week. **DO NOT REOPEN YOUR CLAIM UNTIL
SUNDAY, 11/12/17.** You will only be laid off
for ONE WEEK using Mass Layoff # 1700643. Your last day worked (for unemployment purposes) will be 11/10/2017 and your return to work date
will be 11/20/2017. You will call to file or file online a
total of TWO (2) times: On Sunday,
11/12/2017, you will reopen or file an additional claim. On Sunday, 11/19/2017, you will claim week ending 11/18/2017.
If you do not make application and file your claim correctly and within
the ODJFS’s defined time period, they will not pay your benefit for the layoff
week(s). Appeals for failing to file timely are seldom
won and we want to be sure everyone is paid their due benefit. Full details
and instructions from the ODJFS are available in human resources and at the
union hall. The ODJFS instructions will also be posted on our website at www.uawlocal2000.org.
WAITING WEEK INFORMATION: Unit 1 OHAP members who
were on layoff status and serving their waiting week will be denied
unemployment. You must go to the ODJFS web site and print your unemployment
benefit payment documents showing ZERO amount paid as well as the document
under the “Claim Details” section, “View Claim Summary/Payment History” that
shows “WW Served” as the most current status and take them to Human Resources
to sign up for your SUB pay. If you
aren’t able to print your paystub showing ZERO AMOUNT PAID, print ANYTHING from
the ODJFS with your Social Security number on it and use that instead. Signing
up for SUB this time will start your auto SUB for one year in the event of
