Unemployment compensation; short-time compensation program. Establishes a short-time compensation program that provides employers with the option of reducing the hours worked by employees, while permitting the employees whose hours are reduced to receive partial compensation for lost wages. Program participation requires Virginia Employment Commission approval of a plan, which must provide that the reduction in hours of work is in lieu of a layoff of an equivalent percentage of employees and that employees' health and retirement benefits cannot be reduced or eliminated under the plan. The measure requires the Commission to submit reports on the program's implementation and accomplishments, with recommendations to improve its effectiveness. The measure becomes effective January 1, 2015. Read the Bill »
