UO Voluntary Summer Work Share Program

The University of Oregon will not participate in the Oregon Employment Department's Work Share Program over the summer and has no plans to reinstate its Work Share program in the near future.

The UO Voluntary Summer Work Share Program is based on an Oregon Employment Department program, which is an effort for businesses to avoid layoffs, retain talent during a temporary decline in service, and continually provide reduced wages plus unemployment benefits to subsidize for the reduction in wages.
