New Resource to Help Unemployed Deal with Job Loss

Via Deseret News: Utah resource guide to help laid-off workers is released

Just in time for the layoffs expected later this month at Kennecott Utah Copper, the state’s Department of Workforce Services has introduced a new resource guide to provide Utahns who have lost jobs with all of the contacts they will need to survive a layoff, manage their finances and find new employment.

The new guide is the brainchild of state Sen. Karen Mayne, D-West Valley City, who brought together the DWS, United Way of Salt Lake, the Utah Labor Commission, organized labor and Rio Tinto to develop the “one-stop resource” aimed at helping the unemployed deal with the challenges they may face as a result of their job loss.
