What is a Dislocated Worker?

A Dislocated Worker is someone that has been laid off for a variety of reasons. The 1998 Workforce Investment Act in the United States defined it as:

  • A person who’s been fired or laid off, or has received notification of their termination from employment.
  • A person that is entitled to unemployment compensation, and they are considered unlikely to return to their job.
  • A person who has been fired or laid off from their job due to the closure of a facility or business.
  • A person who was previously self-employed and is now unemployed due to general economic conditions in the area they live/work or due to natural disasters.
