Short Time Compensation Program For Employees
The Short Time Compensation Program is a voluntary employer program designed to help employers maintain their staff by reducing the weekly working hours during temporary slowdowns instead of temporarily laying off employees. This program can help employers retain their workforce in times of temporary slowdown by encouraging work-sharing as an alternative to layoff.
The program permits pro-rated reemployment assistance benefits to employees whose work hours and earnings are reduced as part of a Short Time Compensation plan to avoid total layoff of some employees. Click here for more information.
