Rapid Response to Layoffs When layoffs are unavoidable, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services' Rapid Response Unit provides vital help to both the affected workers and their communities. As soon as the department receives a WARN notice, the Rapid Response Unit can assess what services the workers need and then provide those services, either nearby or on-site. Rapid Response staff can help workers with skills assessment, basic skills training, individual career counseling, short- and long-term occupational skills training, and job seeking and placement assistance. Help for both workers and employers is also available at the OhioMeansJobs Centers.
