Employer Layoff & Closure Assistance

In a changing economic landscape, we are working hard to provide businesses with support and assistance related to closures, layoffs, and reduced working hours. Employers are encouraged to enroll in the Shared Work program as an alternative to layoffs. Shared Work is designed to help employers withstand a slowdown in business by supplementing their employees lost wages due to reduced work hours with partial unemployment benefits. Employers can apply through the Texas Workforce Commission’s Employer Benefit Services (EBS) portal online 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
