Current Narrative:

Increasing Outreach Worker Training and Awareness Across Core Programs Including UI

Career center staff, including outreach workers, have access to online training modules and resources through DEO’s website for core programs including unemployment insurance (UI) benefits (referred to as Reemployment Assistance benefits in Florida). In-person trainings and webinars are offered each year. Outreach workers use this information to ensure MSFWs are aware of the different programs and services available through the workforce system as well as their potential eligibility for Reemployment Assistance benefits.
