Are there any options to help me avoid laying off workers?

Executive Order 2020-24(5) expands access to the Unemployment Insurance Agency’s Work Share Program.  It allows employers to seek approval of a shared-work plan even if they do not meet the usual requirements laid out in MCL 421.28c(1). The UIA’s Work Share Program generally allows employers to allow layoffs by permitting employees to work reduced hours and still partial collect benefits.
