Tulare County WIB: COVID-19 Layoff Assistance Webinars
For additional information and COVID-19 business resources, please visit our website:http://www.tularewib.org/covid-19
As the COVID-19 Pandemic began to hit Tulare County, the WIB pulled key partners together to support businesses and workers impacted by COVID-19. The solution was to virtually connect workers to vital information on applying for Unemployment Insurance, managing stress, and connecting to the Employment Connection and other important community resources. Together partners developed a weekly webinar to reach businesses and impacted employees on a massive scale. COVID-19 Layoff Assistance Webinars are held via zoom every Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. Businesses with 10 or more employees also have an opportunity to schedule a custom time for their staff to access the webinar.
The webinar is a great way for impacted workers to connect to important resources, get support, and determine their next steps. Below is a quick overview of the information that is presented.
Since the stay at home order on March 23rd, Tulare County residents have filed more than 16,000 new unemployment claims. Our goal is to reach as many of these individuals as possible to help. We hope that if your business has been impacted by COVID-19 that you schedule a time for employees to receive the webinar or encourage them to register for an upcoming session.
DATES: April 28, May 5, 12, 19, 26 | TIME: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information
about joining the webinar.
