Ohio Employment and Related Resources

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed how we think about going to work. While many of us are able to work remotely, many businesses and job functions continue to be essential and must be performed in person. While some people have continued working in essential roles and businesses, some will be returning to work, and others are job seeking and eager to go to work. People with disabilities are valued and needed in Ohio’s workforce.

Working during this pandemic comes with risks but also can provide opportunities. Making the decision to continue working or to get a new job during this time requires thoughtful considerations of both the benefits and risks. The person and his/her team work together to discuss the benefits and risks in order to make an informed decision about working. After consideration of several factors, the informed choice to return to work or to get a job is made by the individual and consultation with those they trust and who support them.
