Adult and Dislocated Worker
There are many situations that can occur to an employee to cause that person to qualify as a Dislocated Worker under the Workforce Investment Act. Possibly that worker has been laid off from a long-term job and has very little hope of returning to that employer or industry. He or she could have been an unpaid caregiver to the family and dependent upon someone else's income. Self-employed workers who have faced natural disasters or local economic downturns also qualify for help under this program.
A Dislocated Worker:
WIA funds are appropriated through the Employment and Training Division to provide core, intensive and training services through Oklahoma’s Workforce Investment System.
Most people who walk into a Workforce Oklahoma Center are in search of information. They want to know where the job openings are, what kinds of training is available to them, create a resume, etc. These are "Core
Services", available to everyone through the Workforce Oklahoma Centers, usually with limited assistance. Our full-service, comprehensive centers have Career Resource Centers, an area set aside for self-help, or limited assistance, much like a community library. We provide computers and software for you to prepare a resume, for instance, with books and videos nearby to guide you. If you find that you need additional help, a staff member is always available to you.
Core services may include:
Intensive Services may be provided when initial assessment determines the individual is unable to obtain or retain employment by receiving only the core services.
Intensive Services may include:
Training Services may be available when the interview, evaluation or assessment and case management have determined that the individual is unable to obtain or retain employment with only intensive services.
Training Services may include:
