serving their waiting week will be denied unemployment. You must go to the

benefit payment document showing ZERO amount paid. You also need to click
on the “Claim Details” section, and print the “View Claim Summary/Payment
History” page that shows “WW Served” as the most current status and take
all three pages to Human Resources or email them to email@example.com 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. If
you have any questions about your SUB pay, please contact Labor Relations at
