Requirements

A Shared Work Agreement requires more than filing the application. Once implemented, you will be required to adhere to the terms of the agreement.

  • You must certify on your application that the hire date of each participating employee was at least one year prior to the date that the application is submitted to DEED
  • You must certify on your application that the normal weekly hours of work of all proposed participating employees was full-time but will be reduced to prevent layoffs
  • You must provide the name and Social Security Number of each participating employee
  • The application must be signed by an authorized individual. The individual signing for a private company must be listed as an owner on the UI employer account. Applications with an unauthorized signature will be returned
  • Once an agreement is in effect, you cannot add participants
  • You will not hire new employees to perform the duties of any participating employee during any period when hours are reduced for any participating employee
  • You may have uniform shutdowns for no more than two weeks during the agreement
  • If you lay off any plan participant due to lack of work, the agreement will immediately end, and you will not be eligible for a new agreement for 60 days
  • If you choose to end the agreement before the agreed-upon end date, you will not be eligible for a new agreement for 60 days
  • If you choose to end the agreement before the agreed-upon end date, you must send written notification to DEED and to each participating employee
