Labour Adjustment Services

Labour Adjustment Services assists workers and employers to find solutions to actual or potential workforce downsizing arising from business closures or layoffs due to economic, technological or industrial change. A joint labour-management approach is often used through the establishment of a committee with representation from the affected employees, the company as well as staff from Labour Adjustment and Employment Manitoba.

In potential downsizing situations, Labour Adjustment Services make the initial contact and participate in the development of a responsible and flexible adjustment process. Depending on the circumstances, Labour Adjustment staff will facilitate cooperative efforts to:

  • Ease the process of layoffs and closures
  • Smooth the transition to re-employment
  • Assist individuals, and groups to adjust to the workplace change

Labour Adjustment Services will partner with staff from Employment Manitoba to work with companies that want to pursue a joint labour/management committee model to deliver services to affected workers.
