Item 5.02.
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

At the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders (the “Shareholders Meeting”) of Workstream Inc. (the “Company”) held on April 29, 2011, the Company’s shareholders approved an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated 2002 Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”) to increase the number of the Company’s common shares reserved for issuance under the Plan from 11,000,000 to 150,000,000.  This number of common shares reserved for issuance under the Plan will, by its term, upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split described in Item 5.03 below, be reduced by the 1-for-400 reverse stock split ratio such that the number of common shares reserved for issuance under the Plan will be reduced from 150,000,000 to 375,000.

A more extensive discussion of the amendment to the Plan is contained in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 30, 2011. The foregoing description of the Plan contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Plan, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
 
Item 5.03.
Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

Following the Shareholders Meeting, at which the shareholders approved authorizing the Board to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common shares, the Board of Directors approved a 1-for-400 reverse split of the common shares pursuant to which each shareholder of record on the effective date of the reverse stock split will receive one common share for each 400 shares held by such shareholder.  The Board approved the reverse stock split to be effective as of 5:00 p.m., ET, on May 6, 2011, at which time the Company’s common shares will trade on a split adjusted basis on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB) under the symbol WSTMD.OB.  After 20 business days, the symbol will revert back to WSTM.OB.

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the reverse stock split.  In lieu of fractional shares, shareholders will receive a cash payment equal to the fair market value of such fraction of a share which would otherwise result from the reverse stock split based upon the average of the closing bid price of our common shares on the OTCBB during each of the five trading days preceding the effective date of the reverse stock split.  Following the reverse stock split, the total number of common shares outstanding will be reduced from 992,094,055 to 2,480,235 shares.

A copy of the Articles of Amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation that was filed to give effect to the reverse stock split is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.  On May 3, 2011, the Company issued a press release announcing the Board’s approval of the reverse stock split.  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
