Program Information

Minnesota Job Partners is a top performing certified provider of Dislocated Worker Program Services in the state of Minnesota. The Dislocated Worker Program is a free, state-wide, grant-funded program that offers a range of services to workers laid off through no fault of their own (or have been notified from their employer that a layoff is coming) and who are eligible to receive unemployment insurance benefits. A worker must meet both requirements to enroll in the program.

The goal of the Dislocated Worker Program is for workers to find suitable employment at comparable wages with minimal disruption to their lives.
