Identifying and recommending ways to meet community employment related needs’
Furthering community awareness of the Department of Labor Career Center
Serving as mentors to and resources for other local employers

Why have an Employer Committee?
The Georgia Department of Labor is primarily funded by employer tax dollars to provide efficient labor exchange services and to operate employment services and the unemployment insurance system. Additionally, it has legislatively mandated employment and training related functions. A strong partnership between government and business means a better return on your tax dollars.
