The Rapid Response unit is responsible for contacting employers and worker representatives to offer transitional services to workers affected by mass layoffs or plant closures. When the unit receives notice, either through the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act, public information or another source, it activates teams of staff to offer assistance with unemployment insurance information, Dislocated Worker Program services, job seeker services available at the local WorkSource and re-training services available through the community college system. Services can be offered on-site or at the local WorkSource office.
