GCP continues push for long-term unemployment compensation reform

The Greater Cleveland Partnership is urging the Ohio General Assembly to enact unemployment compensation reform that will achieve long-term solvency of the unemployment fund by reforming the system in a way that efficiently and effectively balances the interests of both employers and employees.

Last year, the GCP supported a short-term solution, which resulted in saving Ohio employers millions of dollars and increased the state’s economic competitiveness.

Long-term, however, Ohio’s current unemployment system must be re-structured for it to be viable in future generations.

On behalf of our members, we continue to seek improvements that will afford unemployed Ohioans the necessary support to re-enter the workforce and provide employers the predictability needed to operate a successful business.
