If approved for Arizona's Shared Work program, are my employees eligible for the $600 of Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) per week? How long does the FPUC last?
Yes eligible, shared work weekly claims through July 25, 2020 will qualify for the additional $600 FPUC payment. Unemployment Insurance benefits (under the Shared Work program) are reduced in proportion to the hours the employer reduces the normal work week. For example, if an employee normally works a 40-hour week and their hours are reduced by eight hours a week, they would be eligible to collect 20% of their weekly benefit amount. If the weekly benefit amount is $240.00, the Shared Work benefit would be $48.00. This FPUC program expires on July 25, 2020.
