The Texas Workforce Commission provides services for both employers and job seekers. Its major functions include developing the workforce, providing support services for those participating in workforce training, and administering unemployment benefits and tax programs. The Texas Workforce Commission also analyzes information regarding shifts in occupations and industries within the state.

 

Workforce development includes the oversight and support of a system that consolidates employment, job training, and work-related services, including the regulation of career schools.  For employers, the Texas Workforce Commission offers recruiting, training and retraining, outplacement services, and information on employment law and labor market trends and statistics. For individuals, it offers career development information, job-search resources, training programs, and unemployment benefits. The Unemployment Benefits program provides temporary income to workers who have lost their jobs due to circumstances beyond their control.
