For Workers Facing a Layoff

If you've been laid off through no fault of your own (or have been notified by your employer that a layoff is coming), are eligible to receive unemployment insurance benefits, and are unlikely to return to your previous occupation or industry, our Dislocated Worker program can help.

Through our statewide network of WorkForce Centers and key partner organizations, we offer a variety of services that focus on preparing you to find a suitable new job at comparable wages.
