To help workers and businesses impacted by the severe flooding that struck multiple townships in Susquehanna County, the Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) has activated its Rapid Response Services.
“Flooding and other natural disasters create hardships for businesses and uncertainty for employees during difficult times,” said L&I Secretary Jerry Oleksiak. “Labor & Industry stands ready to help mitigate the hardships and stress displaced workers and residents go through when dealing with an unanticipated loss of income like a natural disaster.”
