Labor and Economic Opportunity
The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity - Workforce Development vision is to promote a flexible, innovative, and effective workforce system within the State of Michigan. To accomplish this, Workforce Development supports a demand driven workforce system, assists the structurally unemployed with financial independence, advocates for the integration of workforce development into the K-12 school system, and supports the alignment of workforce development with economic development efforts.
SAA recently launched a web-based solution for approvals and modifications in reference to G.I. Bill® benefit programming. This new process allows facilities to submit new applications and request revisions to existing approvals directly on the web portal which eliminates the need to submit paper copies of materials. Certifying Officials will be able to track their submissions throughout the approval process and submitted information will be secured behind firewalls, making the process more secure and seamless for facilities and the SAA team.
Access to the new SAA web-based portal and more information about the Michigan State Approving Agency is available on website.
WARN notices are required by the Federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act to provide advance notice in cases of qualified plant closings and mass layoffs.
More information on the WARN Act is available at the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration website.
