DISLOCATED WORKER PROGRAM
If you have lost your job through no fault of your own, AEOA can help you return to the workforce. We offer services such as Career and Skills Assessments and Personalized Job Search Assistance. If you are considering training, we may be able to help with tuition and other training related expenses and support services. Our services are designed to meet your individual needs. The Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development Video below highlights what the Dislocated Worker Program can do for you.
Must be laid off through no fault of their own from the “job of dislocation”. The job of dislocation is the job from which the individual lost their primary employment, and that any subsequent jobs held after that time are considered interim/stop-gap employment. The primary employment is the job the applicant has worked for at least six of the last thirty-six months (in a single occupation). If the applicant has held more than one occupation in that time period, he or she must choose which occupation the program will establish in its records. For purposes of program eligibility, a “previous occupation/industry” relates directly to the job of dislocation, not the most recent job if it is considered interim/stop-gap employment.
