Rapid Response Helps Workers and Employers

Rapid Response is the NH Works program to assist workers dislocated due to a layoff or closing of a business.

When a group of 25 or more workers is dislocated, NH Works will work with the employer to arrange a meeting with affected employees. A team of local NH Works Center staff meet with the employees to discuss the programs and opportunities available to dislocated workers, including unemployment insurance, job retraining, health and human service programs and vocational rehabilitation assistance and counseling.

Rapid Response helps workers design a plan for re-employment, including retraining, and helps address the many questions a dislocated worker has regarding state and federal programs.
