SALT LAKE CITY — The Department of Workforce Services is now offering online workshops to assist people who are unemployed due to COVID-19.

“We know this is a very challenging time for many of Utah’s workers, but the Department of Workforce Services has programs and services that can help,” said Liz Carver, the department’s Workforce Development Programs and Training Division Director, in a news release. “Our hope is that these workshops will help workers learn how to access those services and help them know they are not alone.”

The "Rapid Response" workshops are offered Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Each session lasts 30-45 minutes, and they include information on applying for unemployment benefits, other information on temporary financial assistance and tips for finding new employment.

The online workshops will be offered through April 10, or longer if needed.
