Short Time Compensation Programs Offered For Business with Seasonal Unemployment Challenges

As Nebraska Economic Development Office hears of significant slowdown in several industries across the state, and  know what our workforce challenges are,  there is a program through the Department of Labor available to businesses to help avoid layoffs and potential permanent loss of their workforce.  It’s called the STC (Short-Time Compensation) program.  In a nutshell, a business would go with reduced work hours across the board, and STC funding would provide partial unemployment benefits for up to a year as an alternative to lay-offs during down times.
