Your company has fallen on hard times, and you have no choice but to let go of highly skilled, talented employees - who you may have a hard time tracking down or finding qualified replacements for once you're financially able to rehire for those positions. Or is there another way? The Work Share program in Oregon (name varies in other states) offers an alternative that involves an hour reduction for multiple employees, while subsidizing partial unemployment insurance benefits to those employees. Salena De La Cruz, Project Manager at Work Share for the Oregon Employment Department, joins the podcast for a deep dive into the mission of the program, how to go about applying as an employer, what benefits employers and employees alike will receive, and highlights of recent improvements that have streamlined the program.
