WELCOME FORMER HYDRALIFT EMPLOYEES
We want to extend a warm welcome to those impacted by the layoffs at Hydralift/NOV. A committee of your peers selected the Minnesota Teamsters Service Bureau as your provider for Dislocated Worker Program services. This program provides free services to get you back to work quickly, including career counseling, job search workshops, résumé development, funding for training, financial support, and more.
The first step is attending a registration session, the second step is completing a Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) if you have less than a Bachelor's Degree, and the third and final step is meeting with your counselor to create your Individual Employment Plan. Once you've completed these steps and submitted all required documentation, you are enrolled!
Once enrolled, you are able to begin taking advantage of all the benefits the program has to offer.
Call today for more information at (612) 676-3710, or sign up online for a REGISTRATION SESSION.

TRADE ADJUSTMENT ASSISTANCE (tAA)
Some former Target employees have been determined to be eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) - a federal program offering additional benefits to those who have lost their jobs in trade-related layoffs.
If you are TAA eligible, you will receive a certified letter in the mail informing you of these benefits and inviting you to attend an information session. If you're not sure if you are eligible, talk with your counselor or call (612) 676-3710 and we can check on your behalf.
TAA provides benefits beyond what is available through the Dislocated Worker Program: up to 2 years of training (full tuition, books, and parking on approved plans), extended unemployment insurance benefits while attending training, wage reimbursement for workers over 50 years of age making less than $50,000/year (up to $10,000!), and more.
You can read about benefits on DEED's TAA webpage. We strongly encourage you to attend an information session to learn more about these benefits.
In order to be eligible, individuals must be unemployed or working in unsuitable employment (as defined by the federal TAA program).
