The Georgia Department of Labor announced that it would not be renewing the leases on 7 offices that operate as career centers around the state:
No GDOL employees will lose their jobs as a result of these office closures. A total of 61 employees will be relocated to nearby offices where they will serve to ease existing staff shortages.
Realignments include the following:
Location Closure Alternate Location Blairsville Blue Ridge Camilla Moultrie Eastman Dublin Elberton Athens Kings Bay Waycross or Brunswick Monroe Covington or Athens Northwest Georgia Dalton
Several criteria were used when making the decision for realignment, including the proximity of the offices to other career centers, the number of customers and staff affected, and the length and terms of the lease agreements for each office.
