Help when you are considering layoffs

If you're considering a layoff or business closing, contact us first at 866-213-1422. We may be able to help you avoid layoffs, depending upon your situation.

Connect with your Rapid Response Team

If layoffs need to take place, we can help guide you through what will be a difficult process for your company and a challenging time for your employees. We may also be able to come to your workplace to provide information about services for eligible employees. 

We can help you comply with federal regulations that apply to mass layoffs. Federal law requires employers with at least 100 employees to notify us at the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development at least 60 days prior to a mass layoff or plant closing.
