More Laid off Workers Eligible for Federal Assistance

Article excerpt

Laid off employees of three more oil-related businesses in Oklahoma have become eligible for federal assistance in retraining or compensation.

The program, Federal Trade Readjustment Act, is administered in the state by the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission.

Newly eligible are former employees of these companies separated from their jobs during the listed dates:

- Sperry-Sun/Baroid Logging Systems in several Oklahoma locations on or after Jan. 31.

- Baroid Drilling Fluids in several Oklahoma locations on or after Jan. 31.

- Brookfield Petroleum Inc. of Tulsa on or after April 26, 1988, and before July 1.

Workers who lost their jobs as a result of the impact of foreign imports may receive additional unemployment benefits if they have exhausted regular jobless benefits, relocation and job search allowances and retraining, the employment security commission said. . .

- Jesus House and the Areawide Aging Agency will be recipients of the sixth annual Hadson Benefit later this month sponsored by Hadson Foundation, the non-profit arm of Hadson Corp. of Oklahoma City.

In the past five years, Hadson has sponsored benefits netting more than $95,000 to benefit local charities.

This year's activities will include a luncheon with style show on Aug. 18 during the noon hours and a dinner and dance that evening featuring the Dallas show band Caper. Both events will be at the Marriott Hotel.

Reservations should be made no later than Aug. 14. For ticket information, contact Atheda Fletcher at Hadson. . .
