Texas Workforce Commission
For employers, TWC offers recruiting, retention, training and retraining, and outplacement services, as well as valuable information on labor law and unemployment insurance, tax-saving programs and labor market planning. For job seekers, TWC offers career development information, job search resources, training programs, and administers the unemployment benefits program.
TWC's online job-matching system, WorkInTexas.com, features thousands of opportunities for Texas jobseekers and qualified applicants for Texas employers.
One large program, the Skills Development Fund, is Texas' premier job–training program providing training dollars for Texas businesses to help workers learn new skills and upgrade existing skills.
Through TWC's new "Texas Back to Work" program, employers can earn up to $2,000 for each new employee they hire who has been receiving unemployment insurance.
TWC also administers the Texas Payday Law, Texas Child Labor Law and Child Care Services. TWC works with 28 Local Workforce Development Boards to provide employment assistance and promote self-sufficiency for customers. The boards oversee the delivery of child care services, employment and training programs for welfare recipients, as well as planning employment services in their area's Texas Workforce Centers. They also direct the services called for under the Workforce Investment Act.
