Adjuncts facing a summer without pay because of no/reduced class assignments in the summer need to file for unemployment. Check your eligibility and file at ODJFS https://jfs.ohio.gov/ouc/ClaimInformationPage.stm
When filing for unemployment, always remember to report that your term of employment at your Spring 2016 school(s) has/have ended. Your employment documents demonstrate that you do NOT have “reasonable assurance” of continuing employment there — quote any such language:
Point out as well that an ODJFS document affirms that adjuncts do not have reasonable assurance: https://jfs.ohio.gov/ouc/School_Employee_Handout.pdf ( second page, bottom of left column).
If your claim is contested, appeal. Refer to our Powerpoint on the process: http://optfa.com/powerpoint-from-unemployment-comp-workshops-now-available/
