Work Share Program - State of Oregon Employment Department

Work Share provides an alternative for employers and workers who may be facing the  prospect of a lay off situation. With Work Share, instead of reducing staff, an employer reduces the hours of work for a group of workers. Partial Unemployment Insurance benefits are then paid to supplement workers' reduced wages.
