TAA Certified Companies

Displaced workers of these companies have been ruled eligible for the Trade Act program by the US Department of Labor. Established by the Trade Act of 1974 (19USC 2273), Trade Act benefits provide assistance to those who lose jobs or significant work hours because of increased imports or a shift in production out of the country. The Trade Readjustment Assistance (TRA) program provides additional unemployment compensation to individuals who are in full time Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) occupational training. The goal is to help laid-off workers return to suitable employment as quickly as possible.

The below companies have been certified by the US Department of Labor for TAA. Certifications cover from appx. one (1) year prior to the certification date, to two (2) full years after the certification date, for a total of three (3) years.
