Relief for laid off and unpaid employees: ARIZONA@WORK-Yuma County is working side-by-side with you as we work toward resiliency following the economic and workforce difficulties posed by COVID-19. The effects of “precaution” are being felt here in Yuma County. We are committed to do everything we can to help ease the burden of our businesses and workforce as we work through this together.
ARIZONA@WORK – Yuma County has access to federal and state Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding to assist in a variety of ways:
- ARIZONA@WORK – Yuma County is a resource for employees laid off from their job. Reach out for assistance with Unemployment Insurance benefits by registering at Arizona Job Unemployment Insurance, www.azui.gov. NOTE – We recommend when applying include a reason for separation – “COVID-19”.
- ARIZONA@WORK – Yuma County also assists employers with Layoff Aversion strategies and resilience planning.
- Employers (Dislocated Workers) who have been separated from income have access to WOIA services due to COVID-19 layoffs.
