WorkShare - A Smart Alternative to Layoffs

If your company needs to reduce payroll costs because of a temporary decline in business, the WorkShare Program is your alternative to layoffs. WorkShare allows an employer to reduce the hours of work for employees in an entire company (or a small unit or department) and the employees receive UI benefits to supplement their reduced wages.


Your Business Advantage

When you develop a WorkShare Plan, you:

  • Keep your skilled, trained workers

  • Remain prepared for future business growth
