Employers revisiting teen workforce to address labor shortage (Washington Hospitality Association)
The current workforce shortage is forcing many in the hospitality industry to rethink their approach to staffing…Nearly all employers will likely need to expand their applicant pool to attract new employees.

SharedWork

With an approved plan, workers can receive both unemployment insurance and earned wages. For a short time, you can even add new hires to a SharedWork plan, but only through August 27th at 4pm.

SharedWork benefits do not affect your unemployment tax rate through the week ending Sept. 4, 2021: a new state law says businesses won’t be charged anytime the federal government fully funds benefits.

To enroll: Employers submit both the employer application and participant list. Plan specialists are available to support you in completing an eligibility check and in the management of your plan Monday – Friday, 8am-4pm. Call 800-752-2500, option 3. Learn more by attending a Weekly Wednesday SharedWork Q&A live webinar at 8:15 to 9 a.m.
