Business Closure and Layoffs

Managing staffing reductions and layoffs can be a grueling experience. Having to let employees go is always difficult. You may even be concerned regarding your own job status.

Our Employment Transition Team is available, free of charge, to guide you through the process of meeting your legal obligations as an employer, while helping your employees find new career and training opportunities. 

In certain situations, you will also need to be aware of your legal requirements for the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.


Contact your regional Workforce Coordinator to explore options for avoiding layoffs, such as the Shared Work program.
