What are the costs associated with the Work Share program?

There is no charge to enroll in the Work Share program. Work Share benefits are charged in the same manner as regular unemployment benefits, that is, to each participating employee’s base period employers. However, as part of the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act 2020, benefits paid under an approved work share plan for the weeks ending 4/4/20 through 12/26/20 will be 100 percent federally funded and will not be charged to the work share employer.
