Employment Security Division

Vision: Creating Success for Businesses and Nevadans

Mission: We exist to empower a vibrant labor market in Nevada by creating business and worker connections with high-quality demand-driven services. 

The Employment Security Division (ESD) is a combination of Unemployment Insurance, Workforce Development, and the Commission on Postsecondary Education.

  • Unemployment Insurance is responsible for collection of employment taxes and provides temporary wage replacement for workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own.

  • Workforce Development provides a combination of services, community supports, job training and education that positions an individual for success in the workforce. Business engagement activities connect business to a qualified workforce and develop employment opportunities for individuals in the workforce.

  • Commission on Postsecondary Education serves as the approval and licensing authority for degree-granting and non-degree granting private postsecondary educational institutions, both for-profit and not-for-profit and approves all participating training providers for the VA educational program.
