From lhe Commissioner

To My Fellow Georgians:
I present herewith to the Governor, General Assembly and citizens of Georgia the Fiscal Year 1994 Annual Report of the Georgia Department of Labor.
During Fiscal 1994, Georgia continued its strong rebound from the economic recession our nation experienced and remained a leader among all states in job growth. For the second consecutive year, we set records for the number of people employed and in the labor force. In June, 3,257,800 people were employed in Georgia, a net gain of 150,300 jobs over the previous year. Only two states, Texas and Florida, did better. That same month our labor force totaled 3,632,817, an all-time high. Georgia's unemployment rate reached its lowest point since 1991 in May when it dropped to 4.9 percent. The rate continued to hover around five percent, the mark that many economists call "full employment."
The Georgia Department of Labor provided employment-related services to nearly 625,000 people. Job placement, counseling, job search assistance and referral to training and education are among the many employment-related services provided through our 53 local offices. Georgia employers listed 18 percent more jobs with the Department than in the previous year.
During the year, we began coordinating employment services with the Georgia Department of Human Resources, a prime example of state agencies working together to better serve the public. Case workers in the Family and Children Services Division of the Department of Human Resources have access to Labor Department job listings, so they can help their clients who receive Aid to Families with Dependent Children search for employment. This cooperative agreement makes it easier for two agencies to share resources and information, while providing one-stop customer service.
The creation of the Fort Benning Transition Assistance Project to train veterans and out-going military personnel for civilian jobs was another employment highlight of the year. Approximately 95 percent of those completing the training have gotten jobs.
The Department provided specialized help to those who needed it. More than 5,700 dislocated workers, those who lost their jobs because of economic conditions and industry changes, received services. Our Rapid Response Unit provided services in communities affected by large layoffs or business closings. The Jobs for Georgia Graduates program provided school-to-work transition assistance to 755 at-risk youth in 17 high schools. The Job Corps program provided assistance to economically disadvantaged people 16 to 24 years old. The Department placed more than 1,000

disabled workers in jobs. Employment assis-

tance was provided to migrant and seasonal

farm workers.

With our economy improving faster than

in most of the country, some Georgia businesses

expanded while others relocated here. The

Department's Economic Development and

Employer Relations Office played an important

role in helping shape that economic expansion

by providing labor market information and

specialized presentations to more than 150

More than 190,000 eligible workers received unemployment

benefits totaling $274,759,844 during the year. The benefits were

paid from Georgia's Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, which

had a balance of more than $1.2 billion at year's end. The average

weekly payment was $145, with a maximum of $185. The Georgia

General Assembly enacted legislation increasing the maximum

weekly benefit to $195 effective July l, 1994, while decreasing

employer taxes approximately six percent effectiv1:January 1, 1995.

Safety Conference. Both programs were implemented in October

for our state. We look forward to another successful year of serving the people of Georgia, helping them improve safety in the work place

.Employmenl Services

A major element of the Department's mission is to help Georgians find employment. This mission is taking on more importance as changes in the work place become increasingly evident. Worldwide competition and rapid technological advances are creating new opportunities, posing new challenges for employers and increasing demand for highly qualified workers.
Workers themselves are feeling the effects of these changes. As the expanding economy generates record numbers of new jobs, restructuring continues to cause job losses in some businesses and industries.
Faced with the changing needs of businesses and workers, the Department is finding new and creative ways to provide employment-related services. Through collaborative efforts with other agencies and the private sector, the Department is adapting its services to meet today's needs.

or by production being moved to those countries. The program provides a variety of reemployment services to
eligible workers to help them return to suitable employment. Services include counseling, testing, relocation allowances and retraining. Workers enrolled in approved training may also be eligible for Trade Readjustment Allowances upon exhaustion of their unemployment insurance benefits. The U. S. Department of Labor has certified nine petitions involving 645 Georgia workers since January 1, 1994.

A Coordinated Approach to Service Delivery In response to legislative action by the 1993 session of the Georgia General Assembly, the Department entered an agreement with the Department of Human Resources to coordinate services. Both agencies work cooperatively to provide employment assistance to those who apply for or receive Aid to Families with Dependent Children. Caseworkers in the Family and Children Services Division have access to the Labor Department's automated Job Information System. Other services available to caseworkers include employability workshops, notification of recruitment efforts, information on employer screening requirements and labor market information. This cooperative relationship enables Georgians to receive services from two state agencies in one location.
Fort Benning Transitional Assistance Project The Department submitted a proJXJsal to the U. S. Department
of Labor to assist personnel being discharged from the United States Army because of defense reductions. In May 1993 the project was launched in Columbus. One month later, the Department received a federal grant of $1 million to expand it.
The Fort Benning Transition Assistance Project provides job training and education to help service personnel enter the civilian work force. Over 96 percent of the program's 200 participants have obtained civilian jobs, entering a variety of fields including law enforcement, accounting, medical services, computer programming, carpentry and commercial truck driving.
North American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act In response to the approval of the North American Free Trade Agreement, the U.S. Congress passed the North American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act. The Act established a program to help workers who are adversely affected by imports from Mexico or Canada

Promoting Employment Nearly 625,000 Georgia workers came to the Department's 53
offices throughout the state seeking employment assistance and received a range of services that included:
Referral of qualified applicants to employers who had listed job openings with the Department;
Counseling and other services to help evaluate the workers' job readiness and better prepare them for available jobs;
Referral to services provided by other agencies in the community, such as job training, adult education, vocational rehabilitation, veterans programs, medical care and supportive services.
The number of applicants registered showed an increase of 10 percent from the previous year. The Department's field services offices referred 294,656 applicants to jobs and 13,773 to supportive services and training. A total of 39,505 applicants received counseling, and 5,112 used the Department's testing services.
Serving Georgia's employers is an important aspect of the Department's mission. Recruitment, screening and referral of qualified applicants and a variety of other services are available to


meet the specific needs of the employer. Employers listed 166,893 job openings with the Department's
employment service, an increase of 18 percent over the previous year. Field office staff filled 68 percent of these openings.
Many workers lose their jobs because of economic conditions or changes in a particular industry. When the prospects for re employment in their usual field are not good, such workers may receive specialized services which include assessment, counseling, testing, job development, job search assistance and out-of-area job search and relocation assistance. More than 5,700 workers received these services, and more than 75 percent of them got jobs.

layoffs included retail trade (27 percent), transportation (9 percent) and services (8 percent).
Trade Act Assistance Workers who lose their jobs or suffer from reduced income due to imports may be eligible for counseling, testing, assessment, job placement assistance, relocation allowances and retraining. Workers who exhaust their unemployment insurance benefits and enroll in training may receive trade adjustment allowances. The U. S. Department of Labor certified 19 petitions involving 2,290 Georgia workers.

Worker Adjustment The Worker Adjustment Section coordinates resources and
services in communities affected by layoffs and business closings. The section received 121 layoff notices affecting 14,490 workers, down from last year's 140 notices involving 17,626 workers. Fifty-four percent of the layoffs were in manufacturing, with one-third of those occurring in the apparel and garment industries. Other sectors hit by

Workers with Special Needs Workers who face barriers to employment, or who have special
needs, may obtain specialized employment services. The Department placed over 1,000 disabled workers in jobs. Over 5,500 migrant and seasonal farm workers also received placement services.
Jobs ~t Georgia Graduates
Jobs for Georgia Graduates, affiliated with the highly successful Jobs for America's Graduates, is an innovative approach to providing comprehens!ve school-to-work transition services to youth who are at risk of leaving school and not being able to get a job. New programs were begun in high schools in Albany, Calhoun, Columbus and Fulton County, increasing the number of participating schools from 11 to 17. The number of students enrolled increased by 51 percent, to 755. Of those, 88 percent graduated from high school, and 84 percent were placed in jobs, post-secondary educational institutions or the military.

Job Corps The Department provides recruitment and placement services
for the Job Corps program. Funded by the Job Training Partnership Act, this nationwide federal program provides training for economically disadvantaged young people 16 to 24 years of age. Field services staff recruited 1,040 young women and men for the program and placed 670 Job Corps graduates in employment or training.

Unemploymenl Insurance

Temporary Financial Assistance for Unemployed Workers Workers who have become unemployed through no fault of
their own may qualify for unemployment insurance benefits while seeking employment. Unemployment insurance helps bridge the gap between jobs by replacing part of the worker's lost income. Weekly benefit payments also help promote economic stability in communities that are feeling the impact of high unemployment.

Unemployment insurance should not be confused with welfare. The benefits are paid from the state's Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, which is financed by payroll taxes paid by employers.
More than 190,000 workers received unemployment insurance benefits totaling $274,759,844 during the year. The average weekly benefit payment was $145, with a maximum amount of $185.
The 1994 Georgia General Assembly enacted legislation

Georgia's Trust Fund is

stood at Sl,217,917,335
at the end of Fiscal Year
1994. The Trust Fund earned
interest totaling $76,123,573, for
an average annual rate of
return of 6.9 percent.

increasing the maximum weekly benefit to $195 effective July 1, 1994, while decreasing employer taxes approximately six percent effective January 1, 1995.
Georgia's average unemployment insurance tax rate was already comparatively low; the average effective rate (based on tot.al wages) was 0.5 percent. Nationwide, only seven st.ates had lower tax rates. Tax contributions from employers tot.aled $379,923,605 for the year.
Federal Benefits for the long-term Unemployed The federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation Act
authorized supplement.al emergency unemployment benefits for more than 30,000 Georgians who had exhausted their st.ate benefits.
Disaster Unemployment Assistance In March 1994, President Clinton declared a major disaster due
to severe weather damage in north Georgia. The department paid over $60,000 in federal benefits to 43 workers whose employment was adversely affected.
24-Hour Services Seven Days a Week The Department's OLIVoR system, a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-
week interactive voice response service, has been a major success. Through the OLIVoR system, unemployed workers and employers can obtain services using a touchtone telephone.

An unemployed worker can call OLIVoR to receive instructions on filing an unemployment insurance claim and the location and hours of the nearest Department office. Once a claim is established, the claimant can call OLIVoR each week to certify eligibility or check on benefit payments.
OLIVoR can make an automated call to employers concerning late quarterly tax reports. Employers can also call OLIVoR to report new hires or a claimant's refusal of work. This information enables the Department to immediately terminate payments to those recipients, eliminating potential overpayments.
Benefit Payment Control Maint.aining proper controls of benefit payments is an import.ant
aspect of the unemployment insurance program. A significant improvement in this area was completed during the year with the creation of a Benefit Payment Control unit within the Unemployment Insurance Division. This unit's primary responsibility is to deter, detect and collect overpayments.
A Note About Georgia's Child Labor Law Georgia's Child labor Law protects youths under the age of 18
from hazardous work enviro~ments. The law also helps ensure that young workers have sufficient time for school. The Department monitors work permits issued by school officials and, in cases of noncompliance, may revoke permits.
The Department also issued more than 50,000 special work certificates to minors employed in entert.ainment and sports.



The Georgia Job Training Partnership provides training and related services to people who are disadvant.aged or face serious barriers to employment. Funded by the federal Job Training Partnership Act, these programs operate through local partnerships involving businesses, public agencies and community leaders.
Private industry councils in each of 22 service delivery areas design training to meet the specific needs of local employers. Each council includes represent.atives from local businesses, organized labor and public agencies. A majority of the council's members come from the private sector.

The Department's Job Training Division provides administration, allocates funds, offers technical assist.ance and helps ensure compliance with federal and st.ate laws and guidelines.
During the year, 29,477 Georgians received job training services, as described below.
Adult Training Under the Title II-A Adult Training Program, 4,648
disadvant.aged adults received training. Thirteen weeks after they completed training, 64 percent of these people were employed.

Education Coordination and Grants The Title II-A Education Coordination and Grants Program,
admirifstered throu~h the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education, provided remedial education and counseling to 1,690 participants.

Training for Older Workers Administered through the Georgia Department of Human
Resources, the Title II-A program for older workers served 217 disadvant.aged workers 55 years of age or older.

Summer Youth Employment and Training The Title 11-B Summer Youth Employment and Training
Program provided training and temporary summer employment to 11,285 disadvant.aged youths. The program also provided remedial education services.

Youth Training Title II C programs served 3,524 youths 16 to 21 years of age
who had skill deficiencies or other employment-related needs.
Worker Adjustment The Title - III Worker Adjustment Program provided training
and employment assist.ance to 8,113 workers who had lost their jobs because of economic conditions.

Velerans Programs

The Office of Veterans Programs, initiated by Commissioner Poythress in January 1993, enhances the Department's services to veterans.

The Transition Assist.ance Program conducts an average of 16 workshops per month for milit.ary personnel and their spouses making the transition to civilian life. Approximately 9,500 people

participated in workshops on eight military installations during the past year.
The office oversees the Service Members Occupational Conversion and Training Act (SMOCTA) for Georgia. SMOCTA provides a wide range of on-the-job training. Through June 1994, the office had approved 620 veterans for training programs with 59 Georgia employers.
In May 1993, Commissioner Poythress initiated the $1.5 million Fort Benning Conversion Project, a job training program for veterans and soldiers leaving the military because of downsizing. The project has proven highly successful in preparing them for a variety of civilian jobs. Training is available for law enforcement, truck driving, computers, electrical and other trades, paralegal, funeral services and many other careers. Those who wish can earn college and graduate school credits through the program. The placement rate for those completing the training programs has consistently remained in the 95 percent range.
During the year, the Department served 94,738 veterans, substantially exceeding each of the 14 federally-established Veterans Performance Standards.

Labor Markel Informalion

Economic growth in Georgia continued to build momentum. The state gained 150,300 jobs during the year, placing it among the nation's top three states in job growth.
While Georgia's economy is strong, job losses have continued to occur in some sectors. Often, these losses have resulted from external factors such as global competition or changing technology.
As the state's economy grows and changes, there is an increasing
need for accurate economic information. The Department's Labor Information Division produces information on employment, unemployment and other labor market conditions in a variety of formats. These include monthly newsletters and special-purpose reports used by employers, job seekers, policy makers, economists, economic developers and program planners.
Much of this information comes from employer surveys conducted in cooperation with the U. S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Safely Engineering

The responsibility for promoting and protecting the safety of Georgia's citizens is carried out through a variety of state and federal programs regulated by the Department's Safety Engineering Division. Through the levying of inspection fees, the division's inspection responsibilities are self-supporting. The revenue collected during the year totaled $2,069,976.
The division regulates and inspects boilers, pressure vessels, elevators, escalators, safety glass, amusement parks and carnival rides. It conducted 31,097 safety inspections during the year.
More than 200 boiler inspectors, operators, installers and repair personnel from throughout the state received safety training during a four-day seminar conducted by the division in Atlanta. The seminar will be an annual event.
The division hosted the annual joint meeting of the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers' Boiler and Pressure Vessel Committee who were in Atlanta to develop safety standards used worldwide.
Georgia is one of only four states represented on the National Elevator Safety Code Committee, which drafts the standards that help ensure the public's safety on elevators and escalators.
The division, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, conducts an annual survey of onthe-job accidents and fatalities in Georgia. The survey helps focus attention on areas where safety awareness needs to be improved.
A statewide awards program to promote work place safety was upgraded, and division staff began planning the Department's first annual work place safety conference. The conference was successfully held in Atlanta in October with more than 240 representatives from business and industry attending.
The division reduces work-related hazards, injuries, illnesses and fatalities through a partnership with Project Safe Georgia. It is an active member of the 1996 Safety and Health Consortium, working to promote safety during the upcoming Olympic Garnes.
The state's Public Employees Hazardous Chemical Protection and Right-to-Know Program is also administered by this division.

considering expansion in or relocation to Georgia. As a part of Georgia's economic development team, the unit
participated in more than 400 projects throughout the state and made presentations to more than 150 expanding or prospective companies, some of which chose Georgia for their growth location. These presentations included information relating to labor laws,
labor issues, work force availability, prevailing wages, unemployment
insurance, unioni.tion, benefits packages and employment services. The unit supports the economic development functions of
organizations such as chambers of commerce, other state agencies and public utilities. Staff are active in organizations which promote the economic well-being of the state, such as the Georgia Economic Developers Association, Operation Legacy, Leadership Georgia, Georgia BEST and the Georgia Press Educational Foundation, Inc.

lnlergovernmenlal Relalions

The Intergovernmental Relations Division provides easy access to the Department's services and programs for all citizens. The division also acts as a liaison with city, county and state governmental agencies and elected officials.
Since its inception in 1993, the division has actively taken
Department services directly to citizens throughout Georgia It
has implemented several programs, including the following:
Minority Advisory Committee The Minority Advisory Committee serves as a liaison between
the Department and the minority private sector in Georgia. The committee conducts seminars statewide, providing information on the full range of services offered by the Department.
The committee consists of 130 members, including business owners, educators, ministers and retirees. Seventy-three counties are represented in the membership.

labor Force 2000 & Youth Motivational Task Force These programs are a combined effort by Minority Advisory
Committee members, public school systems and a broad crosssection of local business and professional leaders. The goals of these programs are to introduce students to the public and private job markets and to help them prepare for employment.
As part of the effort to prepare young people for careers, these
programs encourage participants to continue their education. Students are able to discuss solutions to problems they might
encounter on the job and learn abol!t skills they will need to succeed. The programs also provide workshops on preparing for job interviews and writing resumes.
In 1995 the division will implement a mentor-apprenticeship program for at-risk youth, teaming them with business owners throughout Georgia


It is the Department's policy not to discriminate and to provide equal opportunity for all individuals in any program it administers or operates without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, citizenship, political affiliation or belief.
Commissioner Poythress has appointed an equal opportunity officer, who is responsible for promoting and administering this policy throughout the Department.

AJvtsory Groups

The Governor's Employment and Training Council was created by executive order in November 1988 and established by the General Assembly in 1989 to assist the Governor in planning, coordinating, implementing and monitoring the programs and services provided under the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). The council also provides guidance and advice to Commissioner Poythress on all activities of the Department. The council is comprised of 30 members, representing the private sector, organized labor, community-based organizations, the State Legislature, state agencies, local government and the general public. Council members serve at the pleasure of the Governor. A task force set up in Fiscal Year 1993 recommended improvements to the JTPA Title III program.
To assist the Department in meeting the needs of employers, employer advisory committees have been established throughout the state. These committees serve as a vital communications link between businesses and the Department's local field service offices. A strong partnership with the business community assures Georgia employers a better return on the taxes they pay to support employment security programs.
The business representatives who serve on the committees keep local offices informed of private sector interests, recommend ways to improve the Department's services and provide their communities with information about current employment and training issues.

The color guard is presented during a salute to veterans sponsored by the Griffin Employer Committee.
There are now 38 local committees with more than 1,000 members. As local committees identify private-sector concerns, informational seminars and workshops are conducted. A State Employer Executive Board, composed of representatives from the local committees, advises the commissioner on ways to improve services to both employers and applicants and provides guidance to the local committees.
The Commissioner's Advisory Council is made up of



representatives from business, organized labor and the general public. The council assists the commissioner in formulating policies and advises him on proposed departmental legislation. Members of the council are appointed by the commissioner.
In July 1993, Commissioner Poythress formed the Council for Competitive Georgia, which is a collaborative effort of 12 state leaders committed to developing a single integrated work force development strategy for assuring a world-class work force in Georgia. Recognized by the Governor as the policy oversight body for the state's school-to-work initiative and the advisory review body

for the human resource component for the State Strategic Plan, the council set three goal~: to identify current labor market needs, gaps in existing programs and services and actions that are needed to improve the system in the short term (this has been accomplished); to identify work force skills which will be needed in the intermediate and long term; and to create a vision for a quality work force development system. Working in tandem with strategies being developed by the Governor's Development Council, council programs will not only enhance the quality of Georgia's work force, but will actually impact the kinds of jobs available.
