One-stop website offers resources for employees facing layoff
Preparing for a layoff is a difficult and stressful time, and finding accurate and supportive information is important. King County provides a range of resources to support you during this time, including stress, career support, and other support services, and you can access all of them through our new one-stop Layoff Support Resources website: www.kingcounty.gov/layoff-resources.
This website shares information about benefits, pay, and retirement; programs that can help you land a new job; and mental health and well-being resources, so you have the tools you need as you transition from King County employment.
The resources are divided into four categories:
- Layoff programs, including Career Support Services and Priority Placement Program
- Mental health and well-being, including wellness programs offered by Balanced You, as well as Making Life Easier and the Employee Assistance Program
- Benefits and financial resources, with information on benefits, pay, insurance, and more
- Learn from home, including training and eLearning classes.
If you are facing a layoff, the Layoff Support Resources website is there to help you navigate a time of change and stress.
