ALERT

SharedWork benefits will not affect employers’ experience rating through the week ending Sept. 4, 2021, because:

  • The federal government is fully funding those benefits through that date.
  • Gov. Inslee signed a law in February 2021: Employers will not be charged for SharedWork benefits anytime the federal government fully funds those benefits.

Businesses, Employees, Families and Communities WIN with SharedWork! 

As businesses reopen and bounce back, SharedWork continues to be a smart alternative. 
SharedWork provides flexibility for businesses to restart and bring their employees back from unemployment with reduced hours. Businesses gradually build back their team with qualified workers receiving partial unemployment benefits to replace a portion of their lost wages. 

SharedWork benefits won’t affect employers’ experience rating through the week ending Sept. 4, 2021. We’re able to provide this relief because a new state law says businesses won’t be charged anytime the federal government fully funds benefits. 

Apply now!  

The SharedWork application is easy and takes only about 10 minutes to complete.
