This program is for workers who are out of work due to plant closings, layoffs, business failures, or technological change. The WIA dislocated worker program offers employment, re-employment and/or retraining services that will assist the individual in the transition to new employment. Services may include job placement, vocational classroom training, basic and remedial education, job counseling and assessment, job search assistance, resume preparation, on-the-job training, work testing, child care and transportation.
WIA Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Trade Globalization Adjustment Assistance Act (TGAAA) provide training services to persons left without employment when those jobs are certified by the U.S. Department of Labor as being moved out of the United States. Affected TAA/TGAAA certified employees can receive reemployment services, retraining, extended cash benefits, job search allowances and relocation allowances.
