 The computer job service system includes all jobs entered by all
partners in the one stops and is known as the PA CareerLink Operating
System.  Here is info I got from my program folks who run the job
service system in PA: 
        "In the PA CareerLink system, we give employers the option to
suppress their name from job seekers.  Of course, then they must choose
"staff assisted" for the job order and when the job seeker clicks "I
Want to Apply", they are given the information on how to contact the PA
CareerLink staff rather than the employer.  They are not given the
employer name or other identifying information.  I have never heard that
they HAVE to be told the employer name.  I know that once they know the
employer name, it has to be considered a referral, but I don't know that
it works in reverse.  We have many cases exactly like the one described
below.  It's never been an issue.
  We used to have a number of PA CareerLinks [the physical one stops]
that would put the word "Confidential" in the employer name field, or
list the PA CareerLink name and address in the employer field in order
to keep it confidential even from other staff.  We wrote policy that
prohibits that because we need actual employer info in there for both
audit and customer satisfaction survey purposes. I don't see it happen
much anymore so I think we finally have them convinced that just
suppressing the employer name will accomplish much the same, at least
for purposes of keeping the info from job seekers."

        I have another Wagner-Peyser related issue.  A local staff
person took a job listing from an employer in which they were replacing
their office manager but wanted to have some potential replacements
lined up before terminating the current manager.  As a result, they
asked the staff person to withhold the name of the employer on the job
order.  She did this and any interested person then had to submit a
resume through her.  This resulted in some conflict within the office as
other staff contended this could not be done - that the employer's name
must be revealed to the job applicants.  In years past, DOL had strict
definitions of what constitutes a job opening and a referral.  Of course
the WP regs are much less detailed than they used to be on these sorts
of issues, but I was wondering if anyone has had a similar question
presented to them.  It may come down to a policy issue rather than a
legal one.

        Has anyone dealt with the question of allowing employers to
conduct drug tests at One-Stops?  If so, does anyone have any policies
or procedures on this issue?  Any indemnification agreements?
