A Smart Alternative to Layoffs
Avoid layoffs. Keep your skilled workers. Save money. Work Share
is a program that helps employers to maintain operational productivity during declines in regular business activity. With Work Share, rather than being laid off, eligible employees work a reduced number of hours in the work week and receive a portion of weekly unemployment benefits. Employers are able to retain skilled employees and avoid the expense of recruiting, hiring and training new workers. For more information about Work Share, visit our website at michigan.gov/uia or call 1-844-WORKSHR (967-5747).
