Layoff Services

If you are facing a layoff, review the following services:

  • WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act)

    Requires certain employers to give affected employees at least 60 days written advance notice of any plant closing or mass layoff.

  • Rapid Response

    Assistance is available for both employers and employees transitioning through downsizing or plant closures. Contact your local America’s Job Center of CaliforniaSM (AJCC), formerly known as One-Stop Career Centers, for more information.

  • Work Sharing – Alternative to Layoff

    As a temporary alternative to layoffs, this program allows employers to keep their employees when their hours and wages are reduced. When business conditions improve, you can quickly recover without the expense of recruiting, hiring, and training new employees.
