Dear Members and Colleagues,
We know that our hospitality partners and workforce are suffering right now. We’ve been in touch with the Louisiana Workforce Commission’s (LWC) State Rapid Response Coordinator about a pre-layoff program designed to help companies and their employees experiencing a layoff or closing.
The hospitality industry in New Orleans is being hit particularly hard at this time. The LWC Rapid Response Unit is available for assistance concerning temporary or permanent layoffs due to Covid-19. Workers who are impacted by closures or reduced hours may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance benefits.
Please see the attached flyer for information on how to qualify for support.
You can contact André France at (225) 342-2918 or email@example.com with your questions about this program. Due to the volume of questions coming in now, I suggest email as the best method to send questions.
President and CEO
