Workforce Solutions “Rapid Response” to bankruptcy or job displacement

Noon Interviews

Workforce Solutions provides resources to businesses facing bankruptcy or anything else that requires them to close out immediately. 

WFS provides “Rapid Response” to help employees of bankrupt/closing businesses secure unemployment benefits and job placement in a similar field. 

In the Valley, K-Mart will be closing its last store in McAllen. causing 70 employees to be displaced. 

With WFS, K-Mart is able to file a claim to help their current staff once the store is closed for good.

Questions WFS can answer:

  • If a business is foreclosing, how can WFS help the staff who will be in need of employment?
  • Can staff initiate this on their own, or would an employer be required to reach out to WFS to begin the Rapid Response program?
  • How else can WFS help employers and job seekers in these situations?
