The State Rapid Response Team serves companies facing corporate restructuring and downsizing. The Rapid Response Team is a cooperative effort among the local Workforce Center, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, and the Unemployment Insurance Program. The services available are designed to benefit employers and employees through the provision of information about the Dislocated Worker Program and other information and assistance with employment-related needs.
The WARN Act requires employers to notify their state rapid response coordinator unit when layoffs occur. Once notified, they shall be provided with a statement of the programs, projects, expenditures, and other forms of assistance the unit and other state agencies can provide to communities, employers, and workers affected by a plant closing or mass layoff.
