Guam - Directors and administrators at the Department of Labor and the Agency for Human Resource Development met today to discuss how they will help displaced Government of Guam workers cope with layoffs and find other employee. AHRD director Frank Roberto says the meeting is aimed at ensuring staff know what resources are available to those who may come through their doors.

"We're not here to spread panic, we're here to make sure we're level headed and just to be confident and to ensure that we can really fully assist the people that will affected by the Government of Guam reorganization plan," he said.

The Department of Administration is currently preparing layoff notices for thousands of Government of Guam employees. The Calvo Administration has made it clear that just because an employee receives a notice does not mean they will be laid off, but DOA is ensuring the proper procedures are followed to reduce the government's workforce.

DOL and AHRD meanwhile are putting together a rapid response team to help those workers find outside employment.
