Are there any requirements for employee participation?

Yes. Employees must have earned enough wages to qualify for a regular unemployment claim in order to participate in the Work Share Program. Employees who will work 40 or more hours per week while the plan is in effect are also excluded. An employee cannot have more than one active unemployment claim and must stop certifying on their regular UI claim the week they return to work on a Work Share plan.
