The V.I. Dept. of Labor announced Thursday it will host a rapid response information session for individuals recently impacted by the Pinnacle Services lay-off. The event will take place today from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Pinnacle Services facility.

D.O.L. said it provides this service to assist both businesses and individuals under the Rapid Response Program. “The vision of VIDOL is to administer a system of effective programs and services designed to develop, protect, and maintain a viable workforce,” the department said.

According to the release, attendees will receive information regarding career services, filing for unemployment insurance, employment opportunities, training, and financial assistance. Representatives from DOL, including Workforce Development, Unemployment Insurance, Labor Relations, and Equus personnel will be on-site to provide information on employment and support for dislocated workers to transition to new employment as soon as possible.

The department said Rapid Response is authorized by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act at 134(a)(2)(A).
