PA’s Shared-Work Program offers innovative alternative to layoffs

Shared Work

Shared-work plans enable employers to temporarily reduce the work hours of employees and divide the available hours equally rather than laying off any employees. Those employees who are covered by a shared-work plan receive a percentage of their unemployment compensation weekly benefit amount while they work the reduced schedule, if they are otherwise eligible for unemployment compensation.
