The United States Employment Service: Its History, Activities and Organization

By Darrell Hevenor Smith; Brookings Institution | Go to book overview

CHAPTER III
ORGANIZATION
The United States Employment Service, though technically a creation of the Office of the Secretary of Labor,1 functions as a bureau of the Department of Labor.The Service is organized upon both a geographical and a functional plan, the general administration being carried on centrally at Washington,2 while the technical operations inhere to the field.The organization is set up to supervise and control four technical processes in addition to the general executive and administrative activities. These processes are concerned with (1) coöperation with states and municipalities in general employment work, (2) the gathering of industrial employment information, (3) recruitment and distribution of agricultural labor, and (4) junior placement and guidance.The frame-work of the organization thus, is:
Executive
The Director General
General Administration
Office Proper of the Director General
Office of Chief Clerk
Technical Supervision
State Coöperation Work
Industrial Employment Information Section
Junior Division
Farm District

As will be noted, the organization nomenclature is not standardized, a section being, to all intents and purposes, coördinate with a division.

It is also to be noted that while certain units come directly under the supervision of the Director General, others are responsible to him through an intermediary administrative officer.
