Workers at Parker Hannifin Corporation Instrumentation Group – Sporlan Division Eligible for Federal Assistance

A ruling by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) determined that all workers of Parker Hannifin Corp. Instrumentation Group – Sporlan Division, including on-site leased workers from Pro Resources Staffing Services and Leaders Staffing in New Haven, Ind., are eligible to receive services under the federal Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program.

The TAA program is made available to workers who are displaced due to foreign imports or shifts in production out of the country.

The federal ruling was issued on December 24, 2015. Workers of Parker Hannifin Corp. Instrumentation Group – Sporlan Division, including leased workers from Pro Resources Staffing Services, New Haven, Ind., who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after September 29, 2014, through two years from the date of certification, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on the date of certification through two years from the date of certification are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance.

All workers of Leaders Staffing working on site at Parker Hannifin Corp. Instrumentation Group – Sporlan Division, New Haven, Ind., who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after January 1, 2014, through two years from the date of certification, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on the date of certification through two years from the date of certification are also eligible to apply for adjustment assistance.

The workers' firm is engaged in activities related to the production of refrigeration and air conditioning components.

The TAA program provides benefits to help unemployed workers prepare for and obtain suitable employment. They may be eligible for a variety of re-employment services, job search and relocation allowances, and training. In addition, weekly trade re-adjustment allowances may be payable to eligible workers following the exhaustion of unemployment insurance benefits.

If the DOL finds that a significant number of workers at the company 50 or older possess skills that are not easily transferable and that competitive conditions within the industry are adverse, the workers may be eligible for Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA). If the company is certified, older workers may choose between regular TAA benefits or a wage subsidy of 50 percent of the difference between their new salary and old salary – up to $10,000. The determination will be made in the coming weeks and will be posted online at www.doleta.gov/tradeact/taa/taa_search.cfm. Enter the certification numbers TA-W-90,108 and TA-W-90,108A .

Eligible workers may obtain more information at their local WorkOne center. A listing of all of the centers can be found at www.workoneworks.com.
