Guidance on Essential Workforce

Michigan’s Work Share program allows employers to restart their business and bring employees back from unemployment.​Employers can bring employees back with reduced hours - while employees collect partial unemployment benefits to make up a portion of the lost wages. Employers can also retain their current workforce and are given the flexibility to choose which of their employees are part of a Work Share plan.
