The Gulf Coast Oil & Gas Initiative

While the price of oil plunged below $30 per barrel, our region’s workforce has certainly felt the effects.  Thousands of highly-trained individuals have been laid off and are struggling to find employment as more and more companies announce workforce reductions. Gulf Coast Workforce Solutions announced the launch of the Gulf Coast Oil & Gas Initiative aimed specifically at those individuals.  The goal of the program is to find employers in other industries that are looking for highly-trained individuals to meet their needs and match them with job-seekers from the state’s database, WorkInTexas.com.

Workplace Posters

Some of the laws administered by DOL require that employers post certain notices in their workplaces in order to ensure their employees have access to information about their rights. We provide all required posters free of charge. Posting requirements vary by law. Not all employers are covered by each of DOL’s laws, thus not all employers may have to post a specific notice. Requirements depend on factors such as nature and location of business, number of employees, annual dollar volume and whether the organization has federal contracts or subcontracts. If you aren’t sure what posters your business is required to display, contact us and we will help you determine which posters you need to be in compliance.
