State Employment Sites
State employment websites include agencies that:
- Promote the well-being of the state's workers
- Help workers find employment
- Deal with issues confronting special populations such as veterans, migrants, youth, seniors or disabled workers
- Provide retraining and rehabilitation
These agencies conduct studies, publish labor market statistics, and often enforce occupational safety regulations. They process unemployment claims, administer workmen's compensation programs and often handle workplace discrimination complaints. They sometimes sponsor job fairs.
Often there are listings of state-operated employment and training centers around the state. Many states operate electronic databases for job seekers and employers seeking workers, and some have online business directories. Sometimes they link to national resources, such as America's Job Bank. Many states provide other valuable career-planning resources.
