Outplacement Assistance

Running a business comes with considerable challenges. If you are considering laying off employees, closing a division, or shutting down business operations within California, we can help you to ensure a smooth transition for your company and your employees, while ensuring compliance with legal requirements.

NOVA will save you time and help you understand all the options available to you and your employees.


NOVA can help your company:


Prepare for a layoff

During a layoff, you may be legally required to file a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) notice, giving your employees 60 days notice. Both the federal government and the state of California have requirements indicating when this notice is necessary. Click here for information on California's WARN requirements. If you are required to file and are located in NOVA's service area (Cupertino, Los Altos, Milpitas, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Santa Clara, and Sunnyvale), notice must also be given to NOVA (click here to send your WARN via e-mail), the County of Santa Clara (click here to email), and the chief local elected official of the city where the layoff will occur (contact the city directly).

NOVA is also under contract to handle WARN notices for the County of San Mateo. If you are required to file and are located in San Mateo County, notice must be sent to NOVA (click here to send your WARN via e-mail), the County of San Mateo, and the chief local elected official of the city where the layoff will occur.

NOVA can provide a confidential consultation with your HR department during the initial planning stages to help with your preparations. NOVA collaborates with EDD and can assist with questions relative to the Workforce Investment Act, Trade Adjustment Assistance, and unemployment insurance benefits. 

 

Provide separated employees with career transition services and retraining

NOVA can work with you to provide outplacement services for the employees who are being laid off. NOVA can facilitate on-site presentations to your employees to learn about services for which they are eligible, which may include skills training through programs such as the Workforce Investment Act and Trade Adjustment Assistance. EDD staff co-present to provide an overview of unemployment insurance benefits and TAA. Your employees will learn about our NOVA Job Center, and the variety of services available to them at no cost during their career transition.


A NOVA Employer Services representative can provide a confidential consultation to answer your questions. Contact us at 408-730-7232 or employerservices@novaworks.org.
