Work-Sharing Program

Given the unpredictability of the current climate the Government of Ontario has instituted several programs for employers of all sizes to financial cope with the current stresses.  One of while is the Work-Sharing program.

Work-Sharing (WS) is an adjustment program designed to help employers and employees avoid layoffs when there is a temporary reduction in the normal level of business activity that is beyond the control of the employer. The measure provides income support to employees eligible for Employment Insurance benefits who work a temporarily reduced work week while their employer recovers.
