Rapid Response


When plant closings and layoffs become a reality, South Carolina Businesses can get the help they need for affected employees through the State Dislocated Worker Unit.

The State Dislocated Worker Unit (DWU) is responsible for providing "Rapid Response" assistance to employers and employees impacted by any permanent layoff or closure action affecting 50 or more workers.

Rapid Response services are provided regardless of the reason for a layoff or closure (e.g., Trade impacted, company downsizing/restructuring, natural disaster, plant relocation, bankruptcy, etc.).
