Trade Adjustment Act Division
If your company is hurt by foreign trade, we work on behalf of the U.S. Department of Labor to help your workers get the skills, credentials, resources, and support necessary to get a new job. Our free services include job training, income support, and job search and relocation allowances.

If you believe foreign competition may have caused you to lose your job but you have never been enrolled in Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program training, you may be entitled to fully paid training and other benefits. 

Contact the Connecticut Department of Labor, TAA Unit at (860) 263-6070 or email: dol.taaunit@ct.gov for more information.
