MS TIERNEY — To ask the Assistant Treasurer (for the Minister for Employment and Trade): In relation to the six job redundancies at Warrnambool’s Warehouse Sales Electrical Discounts store recently, what assistance will the Napthine government provide workers affected by these redundancies.
I am informed that:
The Warehouse Sales Electrical Discounts store in Warrnambool has recently closed with liquidators appointed to the small retail chain of stores.
Regional Development Victoria has provided the liquidator of the company with information for affected employees from the relevant government agencies and service providers.
This includes information on the Workers in Transition program for access to retraining opportunities, as well as career advice and information on job search assistance.
