Must hours of work be reduced equally for all employees?

All employees participating in the same Work Share plan must be treated equally, with the same percentage of hours reduced. However, there may be multiple Work Share plans for an employer covering different units. For example, one Work Share plan may reduce the employees hours by 25 percent and another plan for a different department, unit, location, may reduce hours by 40 percent.
