Rapid Response: Help for Businesses and Workers Facing Cutbacks & Layoffs
The Shared Work program is designed to help employers manage business cycles and seasonal adjustments while helping to spare their workers the hardships of full unemployment. The program allows employers to keep trained employees and avoid layoffs by letting workers receive partial Unemployment Insurance benefits while working reduced hours.
We can help businesses and workers affected by cutbacks and site closings by quickly coordinating services and providing immediate aid with a goal of quick reemployment. Our Rapid Response teams will work with you and your employees to identify resources and opportunities to help figure out the next steps.
