Navigating Layoffs and Downsizing 

If economic conditions are such that layoffs are unavoidable, we urge you to work with OhioMeansJobs | Butler County to help your employees make the transition to future employment.

We typically set up a meeting with the human resources manager (or owner for small businesses) to walk through the process. We try to arrange on-site worker orientations before the layoff occurs so that workers know what services they are eligible for once they have received a layoff notice. They also are briefed on how to file for unemployment

Contact Business Services Liaison, Missy O'Brien at 513.785.5345 or email melissa.obrien@jfs.ohio.gov to find out how we work with employers who are downsizing. To start the process, you may want to fill out this Layoff Characteristics Form and email it to her.
