Offering Help & Hope

Special dislocated worker projects are created by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development when 50 or more workers are laid off from a single company. Representatives of the affected workers then select a certified service provider through a competitive proposal process. HIRED has been selected to operate all of the projects listed below.

Road Sign

Individuals who are laid-off from their jobs can also receive assistance from HIRED at several of our offices. Call us at 612-529-3342 for more information.
