COVID-19 Unemployment Information & Help

The Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board has developed a comprehensive page that contains information and instructions on how to file for unemployment as well as links to employers that are currently hiring during this crisis. They are now assisting the CT Department of Labor by opening our phone lines in all 3 American Jobs Center’s (Waterbury, Danbury and Torrington) to provide BASIC information about filing unemployment claims. The site also contains a listing of employers that are hiring during this crisis to meet the needs of our communities and an opportunity for jobseekers to schedule a virtual appointment.
