null What do I have to do in order to participate?

The employer manages the Shared Work Program, which means they will need to apply to participate and provide a list of employees who will be affected. Employers should also notify employees that an identity verification will be conducted with the Social Security Administration as part of the employer’s application.

Employees should NOT file a claim for regular unemployment. Doing so will cause a delay in payment.

If you are participating in the Shared Work Plan, you are not required to look for work and are not penalized for refusing job offers from other employers.
