Mission

The Department of Labor (DOL) administers New York’s Unemployment Insurance system, Workforce Development Employment and Training system and State worker protection programs, including enforcement of safety and health regulations in the public sector, State labor laws and Federal statutes related to working conditions, wages and hours, and laws related to public works. The Department is a primary advocate for job creation and economic growth through workforce development, and serves as the State’s principal source for labor market information, offering a variety of services designed to help businesses find workers and people find jobs.

Budget Highlights

The Executive Budget recommends $4.6 billion for the Department. This is a decrease of $1.8 billion from the 2013-14 Budget. The decrease primarily reflects reductions in overall estimated unemployment insurance claims as a result of economic conditions and the expiration of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation and Extended Benefit programs.

The Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 3,550 FTEs for the Department. This is a decrease through attrition of 62 Federally funded FTEs from the 2013-14 Budget reflecting the expiration of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation and Extended Benefit programs.
