Ohio Unemployment Mass Layoffs
Updated: Apr 22, 2020
Many of our clients are worried about the process of laying off their employees.
Your claims can be processed to the mutual fund instead of your employer's fund. This means unemployment will be funded by the government instead of by you.
Many clients are also asking if, as the owner of the business, they are also allowed to claim unemployment. If you are not on payroll and therefore do not contribute to unemployment because your business files as a sole proprietor or partnership, you are not eligible for unemployment. If you are on payroll and contribute to unemployment because your business files as a corporation, then you are potentially eligible, if you meet the unemployment criteria.
Please give us a call at 937-802-3279 if you would like to discuss your personal situation.
