Addressing Workforce Challenges

We assist employers in addressing workforce challenges in areas including:

Employer Support

Mass Claims & Shared Work

The Mass Claims program streamlines the unemployment benefit claims process for employers faced with either temporary or permanent layoffs. Employers can submit basic worker information on behalf of their employees to initiate claims for unemployment benefits. You can submit a mass claim request on Employer Benefits Services (EBS) 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If your business has slowed down due to COVID-19 or for other reasons and you need to reduce employee working hours, you may be able to avoid laying off workers by submitting a Shared Work Plan. Apply by logging on to Employer Benefits Services (EBS) and submit your Shared Work Plan online. EBS online is fast, easy, secure, and available 24/7/365.
