Employers experiencing a slowdown in their businesses or services as a result of the COVID-19 impact on the economy may apply for the UI Work Sharing Program.
This program allows employers to seek an alternative to layoffs – retaining their trained employees by reducing their hours and wages that can be partially offset with UI benefits. Workers of employers who are approved to participate in the Work Sharing Program receive the percentage of their weekly Unemployment Insurance benefit amount based on the percentage of hours and wages reduced, not to exceed 60 percent.
For more information, visit the Work Sharing Program by clicking HERE to learn more about its benefits for employers and employees, and how to apply.
