Ashley, William L.; Zahniser, Gale L.
This report, one in a series of three publications for vocational program developers and others to use in planning and developing a community-based response to worker dislocation, deals with programs for dislocated workers that have been developed and supported by private sector and local community efforts and resources. Reviewed in the first chapter are various services that are often needed by dislocated workers, including income assistance, outplacement services, out-training, job search skill training, evaluation and assessment services, counseling services, relocation assistance, and retraining services. The second chapter deals with the context, purpose, organizational characteristics, program characteristics, and outcomes of three community-based dislocated worker assistance programs. These programs are Project RENEW: A Manpower Assistance Program for Displaced Workers, the Metropolitan Reemployment Project, and the Dislocated Workers Education Training Program. Examined in the final chapter are six sample preventative, layoff, and postlayoff strategies that have been used by individual companies to alleviate the problems of dislocated workers. Profiles of 35 other displaced worker assistance programs are appended. (MN)
