Time 3 Minute Read

President Obama is not only focused on health care these days.  He is also focused on helping companies keep employees, rather than lay them off, during a tough economic time.  The federal government will actually supplement wages, in certain circumstances, to stop layoffs. In February of 2012, President Barack Obama signed into law the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012.  The chief focus of the Act was extending tax cuts for the middle class.  However, the Act also made substantial revisions to the unemployment insurance system.  One of the key revisions was to provide substantial federal funding for the expansion of state short-time compensation (“STC”) programs, which are sometimes referred to as “work sharing” programs.
