I was fired by my employer, but reinstated by the grievance

Customer Question

I was fired by my employer, but reinstated by the grievance panel with 1 week of backpay. Can I file unemployment in Ohio for the other weeks considered a suspension?

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
To answer directly, while it may be a 'suspension', since it is a suspension without pay, and without cause, you can indeed file for unemployment at this point. As you lost more than a business week of work, you can require unemployment as it appears that you were terminated 'without good cause' as per the reinstatement.
