How can the Rapid Response Team help my company?

If your company is experiencing financial difficulties, the Rapid Response Team, headed by the Rapid Response Unit of the Department of Labor, can assist in exploring alternatives to layoffs. If layoffs cannot be averted, the team can provide your company with the opportunity to help workers make a more-effective transition to new employment by conducting prior-to-layoff on-site Early Intervention sessions. These sessions are designed to inform workers of the wealth of free services that are available to assist them in getting re-employed as quickly as possible. In addition, team members may be available to provide a series of on-site mini-workshops which introduce workers to the basics of conducting a successful job search.
