Eligibility for the Dislocated Worker Program

To qualify, you must either have a lay-off or termination letter, and be eligible for Unemployment Insurance through the State of MN.
The process for accessing services is listed below.
1. Apply for dislocated worker services at the local Workforce Centers or EAC locations.
2. Individuals will be called in for a group or individual orientation to confirm eligibility.
