Support for employees and employers
Jobcentre Plus is providing support and advice to employers and employees in redundancy situations through its Rapid Response Service.
Employers and employees are encouraged to speak to the Job Centre in confidence as early as possible, even if redundancy is only a possibility, so that support can be put in place.
- helping people facing redundancy to write CVs and find jobs
- providing general information about benefits
- helping people to find the right training and learn new skills
- helping with costs like travel to work expenses
There are a number of local and national advice, training and support schemes. Job centres work with those schemes to signpost in the most appropriate way.
