COLUMBUS - 
State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Independence) today announced that the Ohio House of Representatives has passed House Bill 37, legislation that creates the SharedWork Ohio Program.

The program allows employers to reduce the number of hours worked by employees in lieu of layoffs. It also makes it easier for employees to avoid being laid off and to receive partial unemployment benefits.

?Legislation aimed at maintaining jobs, such as House Bill 37, are crucial in creating a healthy economy," Rep Anielski said.

Participating employers must submit a plan to the director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The plan must satisfy certain requirements and be approved by the department. Each plan takes effect on the date on which it received approval and ends at the end of the 52nd week after the plan?s effective date.

HB 37 passed the House and now will go to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
