Labor Minister Adul Saengsingkaew was again in Chonburi to check the progress on the province’s Eastern Economic Corridor Administration Center.
Adul said he came to check the readiness of the facility to be a complete and systematic employment and labor-development center which will provide service to employers and people seeking jobs at the Institution for Skill Development in Muang District’s Nong Maidang.
The center’s mission is to manage labor data in the EEC zone to provide services to job applicants and employers.
Specific services offered by the center include initial registration and interviews by the Department of Employment for recruitment, and providing notification of job vacancies; career guidance and vocational-readiness testing by the Department of Employment; matching of positions with qualified job seekers; skills development and occupational skills testing.
Employees also can access information on workers’ rights and social-security benefits, occupational safety, and file complaints against employers.
The “one-stop” center also will benefit companies employing foreign workers, as they can apply and renew visas and work permits all in one spot.
The center currently lists 29,914 positions available from 2,178 businesses.
