"Sec. 4. Employer participation in the shared work unemployment compensation program.

"(a) Employer participation in the shared work unemployment compensation program shall be voluntary.

"(b) An employer that wishes to participate in the shared work unemployment compensation program shall submit a signed application and proposed shared work plan to the Director for approval.

"(c) The Director shall develop an application form consistent with the requirements of this section. The application and shared work plan shall require the employer to:

"(1) Identify the affected unit (or units) to be covered by the shared work plan, including:

"(A) The number of full-time or part-time employees in such unit;

"(B) The percentage of employees in the affected unit covered by the plan;

"(C) Identification of each individual employee in the affected unit by name and social security number;

"(D) The employer's unemployment tax account number, and

"(E) Any other information required by the Director to identify participating employees;

"(A) If the combined hours of work in a week for both employers results in a reduction of less than 10% of the usual weekly hours of work the participating employee works for the shared work employer, the participating employee is not eligible for shared work benefits;

"(B) If the combined hours of work for both employers results in a reduction equal to or greater than 10% of the usual weekly hours worked for the shared work employer, the shared work benefit payable to the participating employee is determined by multiplying the weekly unemployment benefit amount for a week of total unemployment by the percentage by which the combined hours of work have been reduced. A week for which benefits are paid under this subparagraph shall be reported as a week of shared work benefits.

"(C) If an individual worked the reduced percentage of the usual weekly hours of work for the shared work employer and is available for all the participating employee's usual hours of work with the shared work employer, and the participating employee did not work any hours for the other employer, either because of the lack of work with that employer or because the participating employee is excused from work with the other employer, the participating employee shall be eligible for the full value of the shared work benefit for that week.".
