EWDD Rapid Response Team in Action
The EWDD Rapid Response Team is trained to support your employees and your business through any transition process. They help to inform your workers, supply unemployment and insurance forms, and assist outgoing employees with career searches. You can also learn about the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) legislation and how it may affect your business.

As our highly competitive economy continues to globalize, businesses are hardly ever stable. Companies are constantly growing, shrinking and facing barriers to development.

Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN)

Since the passage of the WARN requirement law in 2003, all U.S. employers confronting a mass layoff, relocation or termination at a covered establishment must give employees a minimum of 60 days notice prior to event.

More information and resources on the WARN process can be found on the California State Employment Development Department website.
