TWC approves or denies a plan within 30 days of receipt. The effective date of the plan is the date TWC approves it. To simplify time-keeping procedures, request an effective date for your plan that coincides with your payroll date. After TWC approval, the shared work plan is effective for one year (12 full calendar months).
After Submitting a Shared Work Plan
When TWC approves a Shared Work Plan, we mail you a Notice of Shared Work Plan Status, for verification, and forms and instructions on how to file claims for your employees.
If TWC denies a Shared Work Plan, we notify you in writing.
After you submit the first week of reduced hours for an employee, TWC mails the employee a Federal Income Tax Voluntary Withholding Request form.
