Terms of Use for Employers:

Safeguards for Employers:

  • Validation: All employers must create a Logon to use the system and must be validated by agency staff before any personal contact information contained on a Résumé is available to them. In addition, job seekers cannot view any of your job postings until your Logon is validated and approved.
  • Logon: An employer establishes a unique Username and Password when creating a Logon. This Logon is required for all future access to the system.
  • Access: Employers control how job seekers contact them from the job posting. The employer's Logon Profile provided for validation will not be released. No Logon Profile will be sold for any purpose.

Employer Responsibilities:

  • Employers must agree to follow the established criteria for use of the system with their Logon. Violations of these policies will result in the loss of access privileges!
  • Fees: Neither you nor your agents may charge a fee to provide a job seeker with access to a job referral or as a condition of accepting a job. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy.
  • Labor Disputes: Neither you nor your agents may use the service to recruit replacement workers in a labor dispute, either through job postings or Résumé searches. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy.
  • Résumé Use: Neither you nor your agents may use Résumés from this site (whether received by searching or from the job seeker responding to your job posting) for any purpose other than to fill an immediate job opening. You may not resell or repost Résumés found on this site, whether in whole or in part. The Résumé is the property of the job seeker and such resale or reposting violates their privacy rights. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy.
  • Jobs Posted: Jobs posted on the website must be for an immediate opening. Business opportunities are not considered immediate openings. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy.
  • Monetary Investments: Neither you nor your agents may require a significant monetary investment by the job seeker in order to obtain employment. Usual and customary licensing fees or certifications are acceptable. Application fees, purchasing kits, and work-from-home plans are not acceptable. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy.
  • Removal: We reserve the right to remove any job posting from the file if it contains inaccurate or inappropriate information.
  • Posting of Material: Employers are prohibited from posting or transmitting any material that is obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, profane, false, inaccurate, misleading, unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, or otherwise inappropriate. The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) will cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.

Warnings for Employers:

  • Please Note:
  • DWD does run scans and screens to detect viruses and inappropriate content in Résumés, but we cannot guarantee that we will detect everything.
  • Therefore, please exercise caution when downloading or viewing uploaded or linked résumés. DWD is not responsible for content provided by other parties.
  • DWD cannot guarantee that material posted by others will be free of viruses or other harmful software – you should have a good current anti-virus program on your computer.
  • If you open a Word document attachment and have the option to Disable Macros, you should choose this option.
  • If you have a question or concern about any posted material, please send an email to: JobCenterofWisconsin@dwd.wisconsin.gov, or call us toll-free at 1-888-258-9966, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Safeguards for Job Seekers:

  • Personal Contact Information: Job seekers control the amount of personal contact information they want made available to employers who access their Résumé.

  • Privacy: A job seeker's personal data (Social Security Number, date of birth, gender) is never transmitted to employers.
    Data may be used/shared with OTHERS under "secondary purposes" as long as one or more of the following apply:

    • The data is used solely for statistical research.

    Data may be used/shared by STAFF under “secondary purposes” for the provision of program support, determination of program eligibility, referral for services, or reporting.

Job Seeker Responsibilities:

  • Posting of Material: Job seekers are prohibited from posting or transmitting any material that is obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, profane, false, inaccurate, misleading, unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, or otherwise inappropriate language. The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development will cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.
  • Reporting: Job seekers are asked to assist us in maintaining the proper use of the system by reporting employers who do not follow the rules they have agreed to as stated above.
  • Personal information that you share: Job Center of Wisconsin enables you to upload a résumé and share it with other users or employers. The content that you upload, including translations, may be accessible to other users on Job Center of Wisconsin, if you choose to classify that content as 'shared'. You must exercise caution and common sense when uploading your content, especially any personally identifiable information. At the very least you should demonstrate the same degree of caution as when publishing your content by any means other than the Internet.

    At any time, you will be able to edit your Résumé information and erase any content you uploaded to Job Center of Wisconsin. However, you will not be able to erase content that has already been copied or downloaded by someone else.

Warnings for Job Seekers:

  • Please Note:
  • It is not common or normal practice for an employer to ask for bank account numbers (or similar personal financial information) on an initial application.
  • Be wary and use good judgment if unusual information is requested.
  • Do not provide credit card or bank account numbers or engage in any monetary transactions.
  • Do not provide non-work related personal information (eye color, marital status, etc.) over the telephone or online.
  • Be cautious when dealing with any contacts outside of the U.S. It is difficult to pursue any enforcement action against a person located outside of this country.
  • Be cautious when downloading or viewing posted content. DWD is not responsible for the content provided by others. DWD cannot guarantee that material posted by others will be free of viruses or other harmful software – you should have a good current anti-virus program on your computer.
  • Please note that, although results cannot be guaranteed, DWD will scan uploaded and linked résumés for viruses and bad website addresses.
  • If you have a question or concern about any posted material, please send an email to: JobCenterofWisconsin@dwd.wisconsin.gov, or call us toll-free at 1-888-258-9966, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
