The Department of Labor will host its first in a series of rapid-response sessions for former DuPont employees on Wednesday.

The sessions, hosted jointly by the Division of Employment and Training and the Division of Unemployment Insurance, will focus on career research and skills training,  and payroll and severance guidelines.

More than 150 former DuPont employees have signed up for the session, which will be held at the DuPont Country Club on Rockland Road in Wilmington.  More than 250 invitations were sent, according to Stacey Laing, director of the Division of Employment and Training.

Two additional sessions are scheduled for Feb. 10 and Feb. 24.

Earlier this month, DuPont announced the company would lay off 1,700 employees as part of a $700 million cost reduction and restructuring plan. DuPont also announced that it will merge with Dow Chemical Co. to create three separate companies. Laing said the DuPont company provided the Department of Labor with names of the workers who had been laid off.  She added that contract workers are also eligible for assistance from the Department of Labor.

    Such type of events are necessary for labor motivation. Recently, I join one such workshop which was held in France. The workshop is about creating awareness among labors regarding convention collective agreement. Even whole pdf is available at http://www.convention-collective-metallurgie.fr
