Specifically, the subject worker group includes workers involved in employment related to the supply of customer relationship management and business process outsourcing services.

All workers of Stream Global Services, Inc., AdCenter, Beaverton, Oregon, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 17, 2010, through two years from the date of certification, and all workers in the group threatened with total or partial separation from employment on the date of certification through two years from the date of certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
