Ohio is open for business: Now what?
With a majority of Ohio businesses responsibly restarting after the COVID-19 shutdown, many employers find themselves asking, “Now what?” Doors may be open and employees may be back at work, but employers are facing new challenges as they deal with anxious employees, new employment laws, and frequently changing agency guidance.
