Workforce Services launches virtual workshop for laid-off workers

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Workforce Services has launched a virtual workshop for individuals who have experienced a temporary job loss as a result of COVID-19.

The daily Rapid Response workshops are each 30 to 45 minutes long and provide information on how to apply for unemployment benefits, what temporary financial assistance may be available and tips for finding a new job.

“We know this is a very challenging time for many of Utah’s workers, but the Department of Workforce Services has programs and services that can help,” Liz Carver, director of the department’s Workforce Development Programs and Training Division, said in a statement. “Our hope is that these workshops will help workers learn how to access those services and help them know they are not alone.”
