The Employment Development Department (EDD) offers employment services to individuals and employers for the State of California. Employment services are an integral part of the Career Center Ssystem. The One-Stop Career Centers provide universal access to an integrated array of labor exchange and Workforce Investment Act (WIA) services so that workers, job seekers, and businesses can find the services they need at any of the One-Stop Career Centers. Tthe One-Stop Career Centers serve the State’s 900,000 employers and the more than a million job seekers who use these services each year.
The EDD provides California’s employers with a variety of services to meet their workforce needs. Through the online labor exchange system CalJOBSSM, the EDD offers a statewide network that links employers with qualified job seekers throughout California. The EDD One-Stop Career Centers also provide employers with:
- Re-employment services for dislocated workers;
- Labor market information for planning business expansion, relocation, and future hiring;
- Focused recruitment for new business ventures or facilities needing a large number of specialized workers in a hurry;
- Locally coordinated workforce preparation services.
The One-Stop Career Centers also provide job seekers with:
- Job search training workshops to acquire the skills needed to find and keep a job;
- Referral to partner agencies that provide other employment-related services including training.
California law requires that EDD verify a job seeker’s legal status and authorization to work in the United States prior to providing an employment-related service. The requirement applies to all employment service applicants, whether or not they are U.S. citizens, temporary or resident aliens, residing in or outside of California.
