INFORMATION: If you have one year
seniority or more, are eligible for SUB pay and have not served your waiting
week, you will be denied unemployment benefits. 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 future layoffs.
