Please be advised that ODJFS is in the process of launching an online option for employers to report potential fraud on behalf of multiple current or former employees. The portal is estimated to go-live during the week of February 1st.
In the meantime, ODJFS encourages employers to direct employees to continue utilizing the existing online portal for individual reporting, by visiting unemployment.ohio.gov and selecting the Report Identify Theft button. Employers are also able to use the existing portal to report single instances of possible fraud on behalf of their employees.
For more information for victims, please direct employees to “Identity Theft and 1099 Resources” web page: unemploymenthelp.ohio.gov/IdentityTheft
For more information for employers, please visit https://unemploymenthelp.ohio.gov/employerFAQ/ .
ODJFS will issue additional notification next week once the employer portal is live and provide additional information for submission. In the meantime, thank you for your time and cooperation.
