This week’s State Agency Databases Project subject highlight is Jobs & Unemployment, featuring 44 states that project volunteers know to have publicly searchable databases in this subject area. Three examples from this compilation are:
Alternative Workweek Elections – This database provides a listing of all California employers that have filed alternate workweek election results with the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, such as a 4/10 or 9/80 workweek, whether the alternative won or lost. The database is searchable by company name, address, city, county, state, zip code, and date of the election.
Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity (COBID) Certified Firms – A database of firms certified in Oregon as disadvantaged, minority, women, and emerging. Allows searches by name, certification number, location, and keyword. Also allows searches by NAIC, NIGP, or ODOT commodity codes.
Texas Workforce commission Job Search – The Texas Workforce Commission provides future employees one of the largest job databases in Texas. The site requires users to register to find and apply for jobs with Texas state agencies or universities. A State Application for Employment can be completed on the site. Employers can post jobs, search resumes, and get labor market information as well.
