The Shared Work program provides an alternative for employers faced with a reduction in force by allowing businesses to divide available work or hours among affected employees in lieu of layoffs. The program allows the employees to receive a portion of Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits while working reduced hours.

In response to impacts from COVID-19, the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) is revising the Shared Work program to provide maximum flexibility to support employers facing labor cuts and expedite economic recovery.

Employers can access the Shared Work Plan application here.
