The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development's Dislocated Worker Program will offer assistance to 950 Macy's employees in Minneapolis that are affected by the company's recently announced decision to consolidate three divisions.

"Rapid response efforts are underway to help Macy's employees make the transition to other suitable employment," said Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) Commissioner Dan McElroy.

"Dislocated Worker Program services help ease the disruptive impact layoffs have on individuals, families, and communities and equip former employees with skills needed in the current economy," he said.

Through the Dislocated Worker Program, eligible individuals may receive career planning and counseling, job search and placement, and training and support services.

The Dislocated Worker Program, which receives both state and federal funds, is administered through the Workforce Development Division of DEED. This return-to-work program assists eligible laid off workers in finding new jobs as quickly as possible, at the highest skill and wage level possible.
