Safeguards for Employers
  • Validation: All employers must create an account to use the system and must be validated by agency staff before they can post jobs or search for candidates.
  • User ID and Password: An employer establishes a unique User ID and Password when creating an account. Your email address will be your user ID. The User ID and Password is required for all future access to the system.

Employer Responsibilities

Employers must agree to follow the established criteria for use of the system when they create an account. Violations of these policies will result in the loss of access privileges:

  1. 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.
  2. Labor Disputes: Neither you nor your agents may use the service to recruit replacement workers in a labor dispute, either through job postings or resume searches. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy.
  3. Profile Information/Resume Use: Neither you nor your agents may use profile information or resumes from this site (whether received through a candidate search or from a job seeker responding to your job posting) for any purpose other than to fill an immediate job opening. You may not resell job seeker profile information found on this site, whether in whole or in part. Profile information 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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 where costs are incurred, etc., are not acceptable. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy
  6. Removal: We reserve the right to remove any job posting from the file if it contains inaccurate or inappropriate information, or violates any of the policies outlined for employer job postings.
  7. Posting of Material: Employers are prohibited from posting or transmitting any material that is obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, profane, unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, or otherwise inappropriate. The Workforce Development Agency, State of Michigan 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
  8. Out-of-State Employers: Out-of-state employers who are relocating or opening a new business in Michigan, or who have an existing business location in Michigan, may use Pure Michigan Talent Connect if they follow the standard registration process. These employers may search resumes and post job orders. Out-of-state employers who are recruiting Michigan workers for a job in another state may not register to use Pure Michigan Talent Connect unless the job is in a contiguous labor market area. Contiguous labor market areas include Michigan counties that border Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin. These out-of-state employers post their jobs using the nearest city in Michigan as the job location. In the first line of the job description, the job order must also state the out-of-state work location.
  9. Recruiter and Staffing Companies: Recruiter and Staffing Companies may register for employer accounts on Pure Michigan Talent Connect. Recruiters and Staffing Companies that are identified as such in the system will be closely monitored for job posting clarity, accuracy and quality.

Among other reasons, companies who have violated Pure Michigan Talent Connect policies, or frequently post positions that need to be monitored may be placed in this status. Probationary Companies will not have the ability to perform candidate searches. In addition, all jobs posted by Probationary Companies will also be individually validated by agency staff.
