VEC Local Offices

In order to better serve our customers around the Commonwealth, beginning Monday, September 16th, the VEC will have new hours of operation at stand-alone local offices and at One-Stops.  VEC services will be available to customers from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  On Wednesdays, services will be available from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Offices will be open continuously through the day and will not be closed for lunch.

VEC staff at our Local Offices make available job search assistance to individuals, and recruiting and referral services to employers. Services available to workers include job referral and placement, referral to training, and job search skill building activities. VEC staff can assist employers by screening and referring applicants for job vacancies, providing critical labor market information for business and economic planning, and coordinating Employer Advisory Committee activities across the state.

Other employment related programs administered by the VEC’s Field Operations Division include: Foreign Labor Certification, Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers, Rural Services Program, Work Opportunities Tax Credit (WOTC), Trade Act Assistance (TAA), Veterans’ Services, Employer Services (including the Employer Advisory Committees), and the State Monitor Advocate.

Please Note: The Veterans Representatives (DVOPs and LVERs) stationed in VEC Local Offices are not available to answer specific questions regarding Unemployment Insurance (UI) claims for benefits. If you are a veteran with questions about your UI benefit claim, please contact the nearest VEC Local Office, or review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
