Department of Workforce Services (DWS) offices throughout the State of Wyoming are open and actively serving individuals. People who have been laid off and looking for work can find assistance at one of the department’s 20 locations.

Workers who have lost their jobs through layoffs have a number of options.Most need immediate assistance with filing claims with the Unemployment Insurance program. While that financial assistance does not replace a full paycheck, it can help people through the hard times between jobs. DWS workforce specialists also help the dislocated workers register on Wyoming at Work, a Wyoming-specific employment search engine.

“I encourage individuals who find themselves out of a job through no fault of their own to explore their options with our capable DWS staff,” said Director of the Department of Workforce Services Robin Sessions Cooley. “DWS Workforce Centers are ready and willing to assist individuals who need help now.”

Individuals who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own are generally eligible for unemployment benefits. Workers can submit applications for benefits online by filing at or by calling (307) 473-3789. Online filing is encouraged due to the current high call volume and the need for social distancing. Individuals requiring help with filing can receive assistance at the DWS workforce center locations.
