Georgia Department of Labor


The Georgia Department of Labor matches qualified job seekers with employers and collects data to help businesses, economic developers, planners, and the workforce make quality work-related decisions.

From offering the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, which provides substantial tax benefit to employers who hire eligible workers, to administering the Unemployment Insurance system that supports the financial security of those temporarily out of work, DOL works to grow the economy and workers' positions within it.
