Work sharing is an adjustment program designed to help employers and employees avoid temporary layoffs when there is a reduction in the normal level of business activity that is beyond the control of the employer. The measure provides income support to employees eligible for Employment Insurance benefits who work a temporarily reduced work-week.

Work-Sharing Agreements must be agreed upon by both employee and employer representatives, and approved by Service Canada.
Work-Sharing is about:
•  helping employers retain skilled employees and avoid the costly process of recruiting and training new employees when business returns to normal levels; and
•  helping employees maintain their skills and job by supplementing their wages with Employment Insurance benefits for the days they are not working.
