WHAT HAPPENS AFTER AN EMPLOYER FILES A WARN NOTICE? (RAPID RESPONSE TEAM)
The Employment Development Department (EDD) has established Rapid Response Teams to assist employers and workers during a mass layoff or plant closing. These teams, facilitated through the One-Stop Career Center System, are a cooperative effort between the Local Workforce Investment Area and the EDD. This team disseminates information on the adult and dislocated worker services available under Title I of the Workforce Investment Act and through the EDD Job Service and Unemployment Insurance programs. If the dislocation is the result of foreign competition or foreign relocation, the dislocated worker may be eligible for assistance, income support, job search assistance/relocation, and/or training under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA).
