WAUKESHA -- The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development on Wednesday, August 5th announced the Pick 'N Save store at 1535 E. Moreland Boulevard in Waukesha will close on October 5th.
The closure will affect 80 employees -- some of whom will be offered employment at other area stores.
Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington Workforce Development Board staff will provide Rapid Response services to the affected workers.
The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Dislocated Worker Program provides transition assistance to workers and companies affected by permanent worker layoffs. The Program's local Rapid Response Teams help companies and worker representatives develop and implement a practical transition plan based on the size of the layoff event. Types of services include:
Workers affected by permanent layoff may also access basic re-employment services at no charge through the state's Job Centers. Some services, including training assistance, may be an option for some workers after enrolling in one or more of DWD's workforce development programs. While all companies faced with permanent worker layoffs are encouraged to seek assistance from the local Rapid Response Teams, some companies may be required to give 60 days notice before a mass layoff or closing under federal and/or state law.
