Why Using WorkShare is Good for the Employer, Employee and State
This week on the EverythingHR Podcast, Felicia G. Harris, CEO of EverythingHR, discusses why WorkShare is good for employers, employees and states. WorkShare is a program that permits employers to maintain operational productivity during declines in regular business activity instead of laying off workers.
Business owners have been planning their reopen, but are concerned that employees will not want to return to work before the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance ends in July. By participating in WorkShare, employers are able to retain trained employees and avoid the expense of recruiting, hiring, and training new employees.
The employees who participate in the WorkShare program will be entitled to the employer wages, smaller state unemployment benefit, and PUA. As a result employees will earn more wages than their state unemployment and federal PUA benefit.
The CARES Act rewarded states for having a WorkShare program by picking up the tab for the unemployment payment to employees, relieving the burden off each state unemployment fund.

Enticing Employees Back with PPP & WorkShare
As employers begin planning to reopen their businesses with the help of PPP funding, they may find employees reluctant to return to work -- some for economic reasons, others due to health and safety worries.
This week, EverythingHR CEO Felicia G Harris will discuss options and incentives available to entice workers back into the fold. Felicia is an HR innovator and certified financial expert with more than 30 years experience in business.
Working with hundreds of small business owners during this Coronavirus Crisis, Felicia is hearing concerns that employees earning up to $962 a week are reluctant to come back to work, especially if they'll earn less money per week at their regular pay rates.
It's a real concern especially as business owners are seeking Paycheck Protection Program funding, which requires employment levels to stay at certain levels in order to qualify for loan forgiveness.
Felicia will take us through some options and strategies for bringing employees back to work. One possible solution is WorkShare. Tune in Wednesday, April 29 at 8 a.m. ET

Waiting on PPP or EIDL Loans? Financial Steps to Take in the Interim | 65
EverythingHR CEO Felicia G. Harris, an HR innovator and Certified Financial Planner, understands the difficulty facing many small businesses that have had to close down or drastically curtail their operations. Although the federal government approved the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which provides $349 billion for small business loans to cover qualified payroll costs, rent, utilities, and interest on mortgage and other debt obligations, many small businesses are struggling to survive while waiting for those loans to be approved.
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans applications opened up April 3, but most business owners have not yet heard whether they have been approved. The Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL)s are expected to provide up to $10,000 in relief, but business owners do not know how much they will receive if approved. For Americans who have invested everything in their businesses, their employees and customers, the wait and uncertainty are overwhelmingly stressful.
Felicia G. Harris is going to walk us through some steps we can take to alleviate some of our business and personal financial worries. With more than 30 years as a financial advisor, she understands the landscape and the ways to best navigate the system. It is possible to get relief from some of the financial worries right away – even before federal relief arrives.

Your employee tested positive for COVID-19. Now what? | 64
EverythingHR CEO and Founder Felicia G. Harris talks with James Reid IV, Employment and Business Attorney/ Partner at Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, about the options available to employers and employees when a worker tests positive for COVID-19. Although in many states only essential businesses are allowed to remain open, many employers are still able to operate using a remote workforce. As the number of postive cases of coronavirus rises daily across the United State, the chances that an essential onsite worker or a remote worker may contract the virus increases. Employers need to know the best options for handling that situation and what leave options are available under state and federal law.

Sound is like an old phone on speaker. Guest said “like” as much as my teenager.
Too much background noise!
I listened to one podcast, and the tapping in the background was very distracting and hard to hear the individual speaking. I think the content would be beneficial without typing, background noise, or whatever was taking place during the podcast.
