WORC COVID-19 Measures -
Services still offered while the office is closed

During this time of national uncertainty, we appreciate the spectrum of vulnerability across our diverse customer base of individuals, families, corporate entities, and public sector partners alike.

Given the potential for COVID-19 to cause significant socio-economic impact to the Cayman Islands, the team at Workforce Opportunities and Residency Cayman (WORC) is actively evaluating and making changes to our policies and service delivery methods as necessary to responsibly maintain continuity of operations.

Employment Services
Our Employment Service Officers are equipped for remote working, and as such they will proactively establish contact with our current and newly registered Caymanian Job Seeker customers to offer specialist guidance, support, and assistance via phone and video conferencing.
