Former Nelson Global Employees
The MN Job Partners Team recognizes that this may be a challenging and complicated time for those impacted by the layoffs at Nelson Global Products. Our thoughts are with you. There are services available to those who are losing their jobs, free of charge, to help you through this transition, including the Dislocated Worker Program.
We will be here as long as you need; we are committed to supporting you.
Who we are
Minnesota Job Partners was selected in July 2017 by a committee of Nelson Global employees to provide Dislocated Worker Program services to those impacted by the layoffs. This program of benefits is free, and provides you with opportunities for training, career counseling, résumé assistance, financial support, and more. State and federal funding make this program possible.
Call us at (612) 676-3710 to learn more!
Once your enrollment is complete, you will have access to all of our program's free-to-use benefits:
How to enroll
To enroll, call us at (612) 676-3710.
Let us know that you are a former Nelson Global worker, and we can quickly sign you up to attend a Registration Session - where you will complete your application and begin your enrollment in our program!
Please prepare the following documents for your session:
Driver’s License or State-issued photo ID
Social Security Card/W2
If you don’t have all of these items on hand, don’t worry! You can share them with your counselor at a later date, but we'll need them prior to completing your enrollment (state requirement).
Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA)
In addition to the Dislocated Worker Program, you are also eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA). TAA is a federal program available to workers who lose their jobs as a result of increased foreign trade activity. Nelson Global Products has been certified TAA eligible. This means there are additional benefits available to you beyond the Dislocated Worker program, including relocation allowance, funding for training, extended unemployment benefits while enrolled in a TAA-approved training, a wage subsidy benefit for workers over 50, and on-the-job training. You must be enrolled in the Dislocated Worker program to access TAA benefits. Your Dislocated Worker program counselor will help you understand and apply for TAA benefits.
This is a lot of information; there are many benefits available to you, and it might feel a little overwhelming trying to understand them all. Your counselor is your partner through this transition and will help you every step of the way! You can call or email your counselor any time to ask questions or get clarification. They're here to help you. We've put a graphic together to help you understand how these programs work together:
