How to file a complaint against businesses staying open during COVID-19


Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said Wednesday any concerns about essential and nonessential businesses staying open during the state’s mandatory stay-at-home order needs to be addressed with the business owners first. 

Then workers should contact the Indiana Office of Occupational Health and Safety Administration at 402 W. Washington St., Room W195, Indianapolis, IN 46204; calling 317-232-2655; or faxing 317-233-3790.

During a news conference, Holcomb outlined these new efforts in the executive order:

  • The Department of Workforce Development has suspended the one-week waiting period that is required before paying unemployment benefits to allow claimants to receive their checks more quickly. The suspension is retroactive to March 8.
  • Hoosiers with chronic health issues will be able to receive a 90-day supply of their noncontrolled prescription medication, such as insulin or cholesterol medications.
  • Medicaid recipients can use their benefits to cover costs of using alternate forms of transportation, such as ride-sharing services, for appointments to see their health care providers.
  • The Family and Social Services Administration has additional funding flexibility to allow for additional home delivery of meals.
  • The Department of Local Government Finance has extended deadlines related to local government finances.
