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.
