Ohio Unemployment

After four attempts -- including enlisting the help of Governor Ted Strickland AND Congressman Dennis Kucinich -- the appeals board for the Ohio unemployment compensation/OJFS has consistently refused my valid appeal regarding gross underreporting of earnings on my original claim.

Poor Behavior
