What happens if an employee receives holiday, sick or vacation pay?

If the time off is a fringe benefit and does not exceed the agreed upon work reduction hours, the employee is eligible for Work Share. For example, there is a 20% reduction for Work Share (1 day off) and the employee takes the remainder of the week for a paid vacation (fringe Benefit). However, if, for example the employee takes a paid 40 hour vacation with no reduction taken for the Work Share hours, that employee is not eligible for the Work Share benefit for that week and as long as this condition is in place.
