WorkInTexas.com Blog & Comment Policy (last updated – 11/30/2011)
The purpose of this blog is to facilitate an ongoing dialogue between WorkInTexas.com (herein referred to as Texas Workforce Commission), representing the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) and its users on job search tips, techniques, ideas, and all things related. We encourage your comments; your thoughts and concerns are important to ensure that a broad range of users are active and informed participants in the discussion. WIT reserves the right to modify this policy at any time.
This is an open blog. That means all comments are posted as submitted. We want to maintain an open and candid dialogue; however we expect that participants will treat each other, as well as TWC and its employees, with respect. Comments that contain vulgar or abusive language; personal attacks of any kind; or offensive terms that target specific ethnic or racial groups will be removed. We will not post comments that are spam, are clearly “off topic,” that promote services or products, or make unsupported accusations.
Any references to commercial entities, products, services, or other nongovernmental organizations or individuals that remain on the site are provided solely for the information of individuals using this blog. These references are not intended to reflect the opinion of TWC or its officers or employees concerning the significance, priority, or importance to be given the referenced entity. Such references are not an official or personal endorsement of any kind and may not be quoted or reproduced for the purpose of stating or implying endorsement or approval.
This blog should not be used to:
- Report criminal activity. If you have information for law enforcement, please contact your local police agency.
- Submit questions or status inquiries regarding Unemployment Insurance Benefits, Workforce Investment Act training, or any other specific case involving TWC. Instead, contact TWC directly via our main website.
- Submit unsolicited proposals, or other business ideas or inquiries.
- Contract for commercial business.
- Submit any claim, demand, informal or formal complaint, or any other form of legal and/or administrative notice or process.
- To exhaust any legal and/or administrative remedy.
This is a place for facilitating open discussion, collecting suggestions and new ideas, and addressing common misunderstandings or issue. It is not a substitute channel for TWC services, processes, procedures, or specific policy or programmatic questions.
TWC does not guarantee or warrant that any information posted by individuals on this blog is correct, and disclaims any liability for any loss or damage resulting from reliance on any such information. TWC may not be able to verify, does not warrant or guarantee, and assumes no liability for anything posted on this website by any other person.
Members of the media are asked to send questions to the TWC Communications Department through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions here as comments.
We recognize that the Web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage state governmental resources, moderating and posting of comments will occur during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as early as possible; in most cases, this means the next business day.
For the benefit of robust discussion, we ask that comments remain “on-topic.” This means that comments relate only to the topic being discussed within the blog post. The views expressed on the site by non-TWC commentators do not necessarily reflect the official views of TWC or the State of Texas.
To protect your own privacy and the privacy of others, please do not include personally identifiable information such as name, Social Security number, phone numbers or email addresses in the body of your comment. Comments containing such information such will not be posted.
Thank you for taking the time to read this comment policy. We encourage your participation in our discussion and look forward to an active exchange of ideas.
