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.
Can I hire new employees while on SharedWork? Yes, but the rules are changing August 31, 2021. Employer application and participant list must be submitted for approval by August 25 before the changes apply.
