Short-Time Compensation Home
The Short-Time Compensation program helps prevent layoffs by allowing employers to uniformly reduce affected employees' hours by 10 to 60 percent while the employees receive a prorated unemployment benefit.
Employers can apply at NEworks.nebraska.gov
The guides below provide answers to frequently asked questions, instructions for next steps once an STC plan is approved, and a breakdown of work hour reductions qualifying for STC plans.
STC plan participants are able to continue working instead of being completely laid off. If your company has an approved STC plan, file a claim for Unemployment Insurance benefits at neworks.nebraska.gov. STC benefits are paid based on a percentage reduction of regular UI benefits equal to the percentage reduction in regular work hours.
