Adjustment Services is a measure used by the Department to encourage, support and facilitate human resource management and labor market adjustments, which are in the public interest. Adjustment Services provides funding to various groups in an effort to improve their capacity for dealing with human resource requirements and to implement labor force adjustments. Adjustment Services addresses labor market issues through partnerships.
Labor market issues are generally characterized by an imbalance between the supply and demand sides of the labor market. The two biggest indicators of a labor market issue in a community, region or province, are unfilled jobs and high unemployment. Labor market issues result from such situations as:
- Company difficulties resulting in jobs being threatened;
- Industry downsizing;
- Industry upsizing, new development, relocation;
- Impact of new technologies;
- Labor shortages;
- Shortage of year round opportunities; and
- Lack of community and organizational capacity for human resource management.
