WORC staff to participate in Professional Development Workshops which will result in monthly office closures

MEDIA RELEASE

Grand Cayman, 16 January 2024 – Workforce Opportunities & Residency Cayman (WORC) advises the public that beginning Wednesday, 24 January 2024, their offices will close the fourth Wednesday of every month in order to facilitate professional development training. 
 
The dates of the first 6 months of office closures are: 

  • 28 February
  • 27 March
  • 24 April
  • 22 May
  • 26 June 
  • 24 July

The one-day closure will enable staff to participate in consistent professional development sessions to allow the Customer Care Team to come together to build on best-practices, share knowledge and ensure key staff receive industry subject training; all while fostering a stronger work culture to improve public service value. 

The public is asked to note that if a work permit is set to expire on the date of a scheduled office closure, the application for renewal should be delivered to WORC the day before the expiry date.  This will ensure that the individual remains in compliance with the Immigration (Transition) Act (2022 Revision).  Customers may also utilize WORC’s online payment portal via worc.ky. 

Contact Customer Care at 945-9672 or toll free at 1-800-534-9672 or email WORC@gov.ky with any questions during the operational hours of 8:30am – 4:00pm Monday through Friday.
