null How does it work in practice?
An employee normally works a 40-hour week. The employer reduces the work schedule by 20%. The employer submits a plan for this reduction to KDOL and is approved under the Shared Work Program.
In this example, the employee qualifies for regular unemployment compensation with a weekly benefit amount (WBA) of $488 (actual WBA will vary based on the employee).
20% of 40-hour work week = 8 hours
Employee works and earns wages for 32 hours
20% x $488 WBA = $97
This employee would receive $97 in unemployment benefits in addition to the 32 hours of wages earned during the week.
