Layoff Support for Workers

If you are about to be laid off, or have been, the region’s Rapid Response Team wants to help.  Each week a live Zoom session is offered for anyone needing help with:

  • registering for Unemployment benefits,
  • accessing income support and healthcare resources,
  • connecting to training (if you wish to improve or change careers)
  • accessing reemployment services (resumes, interviewing, and more)

Staff from the Employment Department, Oregon Healthcare Market Place, and Rogue Community College will be on hand to explain each program and answer questions.
