The New York State Department of Labor (NYS DOL) announced the launch of a new Twitter account to improve accessibility for Hispanic New Yorkers on Monday January 24.
By following @NYSDOLenEspanol on Twitter, Spanish-speaking residents can receive the latest information on job and training opportunities, worker rights and protections, Unemployment Insurance (UI), immigration policies, and other important employment resources.
The Twitter account will also highlight COVID-19 updates and information, as well as New York State programs and resources to ensure that Spanish-speaking families and working people have access to the information, assistance, and services they may need.
“Social media continues to be a critical and powerful communication tool,” said NYS DOL Commissioner Roberta Reardon. “This new social media account will increase our visibility and enable us to better deliver important, life-changing services, resources, and information to more New Yorkers in real time.”
