The Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) and Michigan Works! Agencies (MWA) partnership formed in April 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic, created a working relationship allowing UIA and MWA to work collaboratively in serving UIA customers. The SEMCA Michigan Works! team has been honored in assisting Michigan residents by fielding more than 140,000 unemployment insurance issue calls and contacts since being engaged by the UIA.
Beginning today, the special project will end and allow SEMCA to refocus its energies and staff to the primary mission of connecting individuals with employment, education and training opportunities.
SEMCA Michigan Works! stands ready to assist job seekers with services to help find a job or support with obtaining training to advance a career and businesses in finding talent and with support for their training needs.
