The Job Center of Wisconsin system, built and maintained by DET, is the cornerstone of the labor exchange system in Wisconsin. It is important that accurate job orders are listed on Job Center of Wisconsin so job seekers and employers are connected in a proper and timely fashion. The quality of job orders is especially important now, given our self-service system and the high number of job seekers who use the Internet.
Job seekers and employers must trust the information found on Job Center of Wisconsin. If not, job seekers will resort to other methods of finding employment and employers will go elsewhere to recruit qualified applicants for their job openings. To ensure job order integrity, all job orders will be reviewed by the Job Center of Wisconsin Call Center staff using the Job Order Quality Assurance Program guidelines. Job orders will be verified for accuracy, honesty and compliance with this policy document, quality guidelines, and appropriate labor laws. A quality job order will provide complete, accurate and factual information about the job. It will be written so that the general public can understand the job. Job Center of Wisconsin is a government web site and must be held to the highest standards.
All job orders must:
- Clearly and accurately represent the employment situation.
- Comply with appropriate laws and represent an actual job opening.
- Be currently available for application.
- Be processed as soon as possible
- Meet DET quality and policy standards.
- Be verified to ensure that a vacancy still exists. Local resources will dictate specific procedures on job order follow up.
Job order services will be provided to all bona fide employers engaging in legal business. Job orders that do not comply with this policy will be denied service.
