This is a notification that the last day of the WorkShare program will be Saturday, July 25 due to the expiration of the $600 per week CARES Act unemployment benefit after that date. This is in accordance with the agreement letter of understanding with the bargaining units. At this point, there will not be any furloughs after July 25 and we will be canceling the WorkShare plan. You should not have to take any action and your hours will resume to their normal levels.
Federal legislation is a constantly evolving situation and, if the benefit does happen to be extended, the City will reevaluate our position at that time.
