NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) - A Rapid Response team is headed to New Albany to help workers recently laid off at Newport Furniture.
The company announced last week that it has filed for bankruptcy.
That left nearly 110 employees without a job.
Rapid Response is part of the Mississippi Department of Employment Security and the Mississippi Partnership Workforce Investment Area.
Experts will offer help by providing information on how to find other jobs for the laid off workers and give information about re-training services.
The Rapid Response meeting will be Wednesday July 24 at 9 a.m.
It will be held at the New Albany WIN Job Center at 301 North Street.
