Employment preparation and career training program that provides experience or vocational education for the work associated with a certain type of job
Available to workers who lose their jobs, hours or income as a result of increased foreign trade activity
Workers may be eligible for training services, job search allowances, relocation allowances and reemployment services, including some or all of the following:
* Reemployment services
* Job Search allowances
* Relocation allowances
* Funded training
* Weekly Trade Readjustment Allowances for eligible workers who have exhausted their Unemployment Compensation benefits, and are in training
* Health Coverage Tax Credit
* Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance/Reemployed Trade Adjustment Assistance
* On-the-job training
There are two types of eligibility for benefits: group and individual eligibility. A different process applies to each:
* Group Eligibility: The U.S. Department of Labor reviews a petition on behalf of a group of workers in a particular company. It decides whether they are eligible to apply for benefits and programs.
* Individual Eligibility: On behalf of the state, your local CareerForce center or the approved program operator reviews applications from individual workers whose group petition has already been certified.
To be eligible for benefits, an applicant must meet three requirements
* Have lost their job or had your work hours reduced to 80 percent or less and lost 20 percent or more in wages.
* Belong to a group of employees certified by the U.S Department of Labor. This means that an investigation has found that increased imports "contributed importantly" to the loss of jobs or reduction in hours and wages
* Have been laid off or partially separated on or after the impact date and before the termination or expiration date of the certification. The layoff or partial separation had to be caused by lack of work.
Applicants who meet eligibility requirements should visit their nearest local CareerForce center or the approved program operator and file an application for a determination of individual eligibility for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), or contact the State Coordinator at (651) 259-7543 or toll-free at (888) 234-1330.
Questions about petitions should be directed to the State Coordinator at Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) via email at email@example.com, or call toll-free at (888) 234-1330.
