The Texas Workforce Commission is the state government agency charged with overseeing and providing workforce development services to the employers and job seekers of Texas. For employers, TWC offers recruiting, retention, training and retraining, and outplacement services, as well as valuable information on labor and unemployment tax law, 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 also administers the Texas Pay Day Law, Texas Child Labor Law, and Child Care Services. While targeted populations receive intensive assistance to overcome barriers to employment, all Texans can benefit from the services offered by TWC and our network of workforce partners. The Texas Workforce Commission works in conjunction 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 Workforce Solutions offices. They also direct the services called for under the Workforce Investment Act (successor to the Job Training Partnership Act). Our partnerships across the state increase the strength of the entire system.
