If you’ve lost employment or are out of work, Ramsey County can help you find what’s next. The Dislocated Worker program is available to individuals who have lost their job through no fault of their own. An employment counselor will help with job search services, career counseling and training opportunities so you can step back into the workforce with confidence.


The Dislocated Worker program is for adults who are receiving or eligible for unemployment benefits. Fill out the short interest form and an employment counselor will contact you within five business days.
