Your OneWorkSource Centers’ staff is here to help!
Just like every business in the State of New York, the OneWorkSource Centers in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Hamilton counties are closed to the public. Be assured our agencies in Plattsburgh, Elizabethtown, Malone and Indian Lake continue to work for the North Country from home. Presently, requests for Unemployment Insurance (UI) information is in great demand and the local NYSDOL staff is responding quickly to messages left on our centers’ voicemails. Also, individuals looking for information can access it on our COVID-19 webpage at www.ncworkforce.com.
These are challenging times but as we have done in the past, we will prevail and come out of this crisis together and stronger. This is possible thanks to the hard work of dedicated and essential workers, the unfailing spirit of our communities and every person who goes above and beyond what is needed.
