More About Shared Work Program

Governor Lamont recently announced the expansion of the state’s Shared Work program to help companies navigate the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

The Shared Work program helps employers reduce operating costs and avoid layoffs by temporarily reducing employees’ hours by 10-60%. Those workers receive a significant portion of those lost wages by receiving partial unemployment benefits.

Since March, the program has benefited 1,340 companies and more than 24,300 workers.

Key elements of the program include:
• Companies with two or more workers can qualify
• Employees' hours can be reduced up to 60%
• Shared work is available up to six months for each employee
• Companies can file for an extension at the completion of the six-month period
• The federal government will cover the unemployment costs traditionally covered by businesses until December 31, 2020.

Companies interested in participating in the Shared Work program may now apply with the Connecticut Department of Labor.
