4141.52 Commencement and duration of shared work plan.

(A) A shared work plan approved under section 4141.51 of the Revised Code takes effect with respect to the week following the date the director of job and family services approves the plan. An approved shared work plan expires at the end of the fifty-second calendar week after approval of the plan.

(B) A participating employer who wishes to modify an existing approved shared work plan shall submit the modified plan to the director. The director shall evaluate the modified plan and may approve the plan if the plan meets the requirements for approval under section 4141.51 of the Revised Code. If approved, a modified plan supersedes the previously approved shared work plan, effective beginning with the week following the date the director approves the modified plan. The director shall not approve a modified plan that fails to satisfy the requirements for approval under section 4141.51 of the Revised Code.

(C) The director may terminate an approved shared work plan for good cause. For purposes of this section, "good cause" means any of the following circumstances:

(1) The approved shared work plan is not being executed according to the terms and conditions stated in the plan.

(2) The participating employer fails to comply with any assurances given in the participating employer's approved shared work plan.

(3) The participating employer, or a participating employee of the participating employer, violates any criteria on which approval of the shared work plan was based.

(D) A participating employer may elect to terminate an approved shared work plan by providing written notice to the director. The director shall terminate the plan upon receipt of the notice and shall inform the employer and each participating employee of the employer in writing of the week with respect to which the termination is effective.

(E) A decision by the director to approve or disapprove a proposed shared work plan, to approve or disapprove a proposed modified shared work plan, or to terminate an approved shared work plan, may not be appealed pursuant to this chapter.

(F) Nothing in division (E) of this section shall be construed to prevent an employer who has submitted a shared work plan that was disapproved from submitting another shared work plan in accordance with section 4141.51 of the Revised Code.
