Job & Family Services WARN
Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification (WARN) Act

Ohio follows federal requirements under the Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification Act which provides protection to workers, their families, and communities by requiring employers to provide written notice at least 60 calendar days in advance of covered plant closings and mass layoffs to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services' Dislocated Worker Unit (Rapid Response Unit).  For filing requirements, please reference the Employer's Guide or see examples of current years notices.

NOTICE TO EMPLOYERS: Due to COVID-19, please email ALL WARNs and inquiries to rapdresp@jfs.ohio.gov until further notice.

Please note, per archived data retention requirements, Ohio only has current year plus five years back of WARN data available.
