have internet access, call your processing center number. ODJFS business hours are 8:00

A CREW (DAY SHIFT): Due to
the Election Day and Veterans Day holidays, you will be paid short work week
for the weeks of 11/05/2018 and 11/12/2018. Please do not reopen or file an
additional claim until 11/18/2018. You will only be laid off for ONE (1) WEEK using Mass Layoff # 1800443. Your actual last day worked will be
11/02/2018, but your last day worked for unemployment purposes will be
11/16/2018 and your return to
work date will be 11/26/2018.
You will call to file or file online a total of TWO (2) times: On Sunday, 11/18/2018,
you will reopen or file an additional claim. On Sunday, 11/25/2018, you will file a claim for week ending 11/24/2018. DO NOT CLAIM THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE
FOR HOLIDAY PAY.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not wait until the Saturday following your layoff week to make
application for benefits because there is a chance that you may encounter a
technical problem that could force you to file your application late. 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 are seldom won and we want
to be sure members receive their unemployment benefits.
