Emergency Hotline For Businesses Impacted By COVID-19

If your business is looking at lay-offs or a company closure - America’s Job Center is here to help!

Our Business Services response team will work with you confidentially to ensure transitions go smoothly during this time of uncertainty. An emergency hotline has been created for the business community to ask questions regarding their business needs and learn about NO COST resources they may qualify for.

You can reach the response team at (661) 336-6860

Or by email at vasquezs@kerncounty.com or covid@bakochamber.com.

If your employees have lost work or have had hours reduced, please encourage them to apply for Employment Development Department (EDD) Unemployment Insurance (UI). They can visit our website at www.americasjobcenterofkern.com for more information on how to apply for these benefits or to get assistance in connecting to new employment opportunities.

America’s Job Center is working closely with the State of California about additional emergency benefits to workers and businesses impacted by this pandemic.
