Divisions of the Department of Labor

Division of Employment And Training

The Division of Employment and Training is to provide services enabling employers and job seekers to make informed employment and training choices leading to employment.

Visit the Delaware Job Link -- a valuable resource for both job seekers and employers. Those on the job hunt can register for employment services, evaluate their skills, find out about training programs, build a resume, submit resumes to employers, and sort through a database of jobs all without entering a Department of Labor office. Employers seeking workers can register for the department's hiring services, submit job orders, and search a database of qualified applicants.


Unemployment Insurance

The Division of Unemployment Insurance serves workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own by providing temporary income maintenance during their period of unemployment and making referrals to re-employment services.
