WorkSource Closure- Resources

0

To align with the Governor’s guidance and to ensure the safety and health of our customers, partners and providers, WorkSource Centers in The Dalles, Redmond, Bend and Klamath Falls are closed to the general public until further notice.

While the doors may be closed, our staff are still working to deliver the highest quality services via phone, email and online resources. When appropriate, staff will schedule in-person appointments to accommodate customer needs.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Unemployment Insurance

Please apply for unemployment insurance benefits online or call 1-877-345-3484. DO NOT go into a WorkSource center to apply for unemployment insurance as they cannot process those claims. Due to unusually high volume of applications, please expect longer than usual wait times on calls. If the website goes down for a period of time – please be persistent and check back later to submit your application.

WorkShare

A program that helps businesses avoid layoffs by leveraging unemployment insurance (UI) to subsidize a portion of lost wages.
