Campbellsville Clarcor workers laid off after August 5, 2008, who have exhaused unemployment may be eligible for special training under adversely affected employer provision

FRANKFORT, KY (Nov. 30, 2009) - Workers laid off by Clarcor Air Filtration Products, Inc. in Campbellsville may be eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), the Office of Employment and Training (OET) in the Department of Workforce Investment announced today.

The certification covers workers who were laid off by the company on or after August 5, 2008. Laid-off employees who exhausted their unemployment insurance benefits before they were called back to work or found another job also may be eligible for retroactive benefits.
BR>Qualified workers may apply for financial assistance, training and job search and relocation assistance. This assistance will be available through October 6, 2011.

Affected workers should inquire about benefits as soon as possible at a local OET office. Applications may be filed at the Campbellsville Career Center, 1311 E. Broadway, Campbellsville. The telephone number is (270) 789-1352.
