Rapid Response

Rapid Response is a program offered by the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) in partnership with Kansas Department of Commerce to assist employees by coordinating services and providing immediate aid to companies and their employees who have been impacted by a layoff or a business closing.

These services are provided at no cost to the employer. The Rapid Response Team will come to your location and speak with all employees. The presentation will be tailored to the needs of the company and employees.

A comprehensive overview of unemployment will be presented to all employees by the Employer Relations Administrator. The employer will have a separate discussion with the Employer Relations Administrator about the convenience of filing unemployment for their employees by a layoff spreadsheet.

The Workforce Center, which is administered by the Kansas Department of Commerce, will have a presentation for employees to explain the services they offer. In the event of a permanent closure, the Workforce Center can assist employees with searching for work, résumés, training, and providing information on upcoming job fairs.
