COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville) today applauded the Ohio House of Representatives’ passage of House Bill 2, which requires all applicants for unemployment insurance to register with OhioMeansJobs.com prior to applying for benefits.


The legislation also requires applicants to make direct contact with their local One-Stop (future Ohio Means Jobs office) by the eighth week of unemployment benefits. These requirements aim to ensure that unemployment insurance applicants and recipients are maximizing their job search opportunities and will help connect the patchwork of different services that exist for individuals on unemployment insurance.


“This legislation will help those in search of employment by registering them with the state’s official job search hub, opening avenues to employment that were previously unknown,” said Rep. Hill. “It will also create parameters that keep those applicants active and engaged.”


In 2011, OhioMeansJobs.com saw more than 31.5 million total job searches from more than 2.2 million unique visitors. In 2012, this number increased to 54.6 million searches from more than 2.7 million unique visitors.


House Bill 2 will now be sent to the Ohio Senate.
