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, including impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. An employment counselor will help with job search services, career counseling and training opportunities so you can step back into the workforce with confidence.
