A Letter To Employers From the Maine Department of Labor

Posted May 14, 2020

Dear Local Employer,

I am reaching out to offer assistance from the Maine Department of Labor.

At the moment there is much confusion in the labor market. Record numbers of Maine workers are laid off and yet many employers are trying to hire workers. Obviously these are not normal times.

The Maine Department of Labor’s statewide CareerCenter system is intended to help employers and workers find each other, and as the costs involved are part of the taxes you pay to the federal government you can use these services at no further cost.

Our first-line method of helping employers is to offer the Maine JobLink, our online job-posting service. We also reach out directly to veterans and other jobseekers with regular e-mail blasts.

If you have a need for workers that is proving difficult to meet, even if your laid-off workers are unwilling to return to work, feel free to contact me. I am also available to help you get answers to questions connected to the Unemployment system in Maine.
