CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF LABOR SUSPENDS IN-PERSON VISITS AT AMERICAN JOB CENTERS, WETHERSFIELD OFFICES

MARCH 18, 2020

 

Due to health and safety concerns, the Connecticut Department of Labor today suspended in-person visits at its five American Job Centers across the state, as well as its offices in Wethersfield.

The centers, which offer a range of in-person employment services, are located in Hartford, Bridgeport, Waterbury, Hamden and Montville.

“Temporarily closing the American Job Centers is clearly the prudent action to take to protect our customers and staff,” Labor Commissioner Kurt Westby said.  “We recognize that this will cause some inconvenience for our customers, but they should be assured that we are fully prepared to assist them through other means during this evolving situation.”

Fourteen other affiliate American Job Centers, run in partnership with the state’s five regional Workforce Investment Boards, are also closed to the public.

The affiliate centers are located in AnsoniaBristolDanburyDerbyEast HartfordEnfieldManchester, Meriden, Middletown, New Britain, New Haven, StamfordTorrington and Willimantic.

  • Visit the DOL Online Assistance Center at www.filectui.com
