When notification has been received that a local company has experienced a layoff, or will experience a plant closure, the local rapid response team will meet to determine the best cooperative effort to address those issues. The rapid response team consists of a representative of the One-Stop Career Center, the local Employment Development Department, and the Director of the Economic Development Corporation.
The representatives from the three agencies provide reciprocal notification of local employment trends. Events requiring immediate notification are: communication that there may be mass layoffs, business closures, or potential growth or downsizing trends.
When a plant closure has been announced, and/or a layoff has occurred, the
rapid response team contacts the employer to request employee information.
Employees are contacted by the rapid response team, through a scheduled meeting
at the employer's work site or by letter, to advise them of the services they
may be eligible to receive to enhance their employment and training
opportunities. The employer benefits by working with the rapid response team.
The cost for unemployment insurance benefits, and other employer's costs for
post-employment services, may be reduced significantly.
