TWC's three Commissioners hear administrative reports, discuss and act on agency business, and decide unemployment insurance cases. The public is invited to comment before the Commission on any issue within the jurisdiction of the Commission.
As of September 1, 2015 the duties and authority of the Texas Commission on Human Rights were transferred to the Texas Workforce Commissioners.
The Office of the Commissioner Representing Employers sponsors the Texas Business Conferences, a series of employer seminars around the state. Employers are encouraged to attend at least one of the seminars in order to learn nuts and bolts information on state and federal employment laws and how to deal with the unemployment claim and appeal process.
