The Short-Time Compensation program helps businesses keep their employees in times of a temporary slowdown by enabling them to reduce hours as an alternative to a full-blown layoff. The program facilitates prorated re-employment benefits from the state to help employees whose work hours have been reduced cover their gap in earnings.
