The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission (OESC) is a United States Department of Labor (USDOL) funded agency dedicated to providing workforce-related services to Oklahoma citizens, employers and workforce organizations. There are numerous OESC offices located across the state to provide services to individuals and employers in their local communities. Additionally, through OESC's Community Outreach Service Model, staff are strategically stationed in areas where an OESC office is not currently available.
There are two flyers available that showcase many of the services available to individuals and employers when visiting or working with a local OESC office.

OESC is also responsible for collecting Unemployment Insurance taxes from liable employers in Oklahoma. These funds are then used to pay benefits to individuals who lose their job and meet the necessary requirements to receive unemployment benefits.
Lastly, OESC collects, analyzes and distributes a wide-array of socio-economic data that can be used by organizations or members of the public for research, economic or business purposes.
