If you laid off employees, can you rehire them and then do Work Share? If so, how long do you have to wait?

Yes, employers can participate in Work Share after re-calling their employees. There is currently no waiting period to apply. Note: Returning employees who had already filed and are receiving unemployment insurance benefits on their regular claim must stop certifying for benefits on the regular claim, and will begin receiving benefits on the Work Share plan.
