Atlantic City Re-Employment
Service for Laid-off workers
You may qualify for employment training or job placement assistance* if you were laid off from the Revel, Trump Plaza, Show Boat or Trump Taj Mahal casinos in Atlantic City, or if you were laid off from any restaurants or businesses located inside one of these impacted casinos.
When you need in-person assistance, professionals at your local One-Stop Career Center can let you know about services and resources to help you back to work as soon as possible, and minimize the disruptions on your life caused by being out of work.
Anyone who needs assistance finding a job can get it at their local One-Stop Career Center. If you need help finding employment, please come see us as soon as possible. For more information about services offered through the Atlantic City Re-employment initiative, contact us at:

Being laid off from your job is one of the most traumatic events you can experience in life. If you’re facing a possible layoff or if you have been laid off from an Atlantic City casino, restaurant, hotel or any other business affected by the casino closings, you’ll find the best information about re-employment services at careerconnections.nj.gov.
Careerconnections.nj.gov is also where you can go to file for unemployment benefits online - the fastest way to get your unemployment benefits. The most important thing to remember is that, in the face of a potential layoff, you should begin your search for re-employment immediately. Don’t wait until the employer closes.
Careerconnections.nj.gov offers the online job-search service OnRamp, and also lists the locations of the nearest Jersey Job Club, where you can get started on your pathway to employment.
If you’re laid off and expect to claim unemployment benefits, file your initial claim as soon as possible. Any delay in filing may result in your losing benefits. However, you cannot file a claim until you are no longer employed.
