The Hannah Report
A state-by-state unemployment insurance report card released Tuesday gives Ohio's system a failing grade.
Failing the Unemployed, produced nationally by the Economic Policy Institute, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and the National Employment Law Project, takes a detailed look at unemployment insurance in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, evaluating how each measures up in five critical areas: Eligibility requirements, benefit levels, tax equity, trust fund adequacy and recession preparedness. The report grades each state pass or fail overall, with those who flunk in more than three areas considered failing.
