Adjuncts facing several weeks without pay and/or no or reduced class assignments in the spring need to file for unemployment. Check your eligibility and file at ODJFS https://jfs.ohio.gov/ouc/ClaimInformationPage.stm

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/
