How A Shared Work Program Can Help Your Business

A Presentation by the NYS Department of Labor
September 30, 2020
10:00am - 11:00am

Learn more about the Shared Work Program during this educational webinar. Here from a Westchester business owner that has used the program and how the program was a crucial  part in keeping their business successfully operating throughout the crisis.

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 allowing staff members to receive partial Unemployment Insurance benefits while working reduced hours. The Shared Work Program helps keep trained, productive employees on the job during temporary business downturns, meaning New York businesses can gear up quickly when conditions improve, and New York workers get to stay on the job. Full-time, part-time and seasonal employees are eligible.
