Finding Employees

SC Vocational Rehab
VR provides a pipeline of talented individuals to meet your workforce needs. Our Business Development Specialists (BDS) introduce you to the benefits of hiring these individuals. Job matching starts when you notify us of an open position. We assess your requirements and identify matches using individualized career assessment tools such as WorkKeys®. Finally, we pre-screen qualified candidates, saving you time and money.



SC Works
SC Works Online Services links all of South Carolina's state and local workforce services and resources. The partners are the SC Department of Employment and Workforce and South Carolina's 12 Workforce Investment Boards, which administer SC Works Centers throughout the State of South Carolina. If you’re an employer, you can use this tool to post positions, search for candidates and review job market trends. 



US Dept of Labor - Apprenticeship
Apprenticeship is a career pathway that includes a paid-work component and an educational or instructional component, where an individual can obtain workplace-relevant knowledge and skills. By combining on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction, an apprentice's skill level-and their benefit to you-increases.

Since apprenticeship is a flexible model, programs can be customized to meet the needs of nearly every type of business and can be integrated into existing training and human resource development practices. 



Requirements for Employers 

SCBOS - Starting a Business: Step 5 
Step 5 in the Starting a Business section of the SCBOS website has a wealth of information from where to register for withholding and unemployment insurance to workplace posters. This is a very good starting point for new employers to see what they will need to accomplish when they are hiring employees.



Employer Filings

Submitting Withholding Tax (SCDOR)
Withholding Tax is taken out of taxpayer wages to go towards the taxpayers' total yearly income tax liability. Every employer/withholding agent that has an employee earning wages in South Carolina (and who is required to file a return or deposit with the IRS) must make a return or deposit to the SCDOR for any taxes that have been withheld for state purposes.



Submitting Quarterly Contribution and Wage Report (SCDEW)
Employers must file a quarterly contribution and wage report each quarter. The State Unemployment Insurance Tax System (SUITS) makes it easy for employers to file online. If you have an account with DEW, but have not used SUITS, you will need to authenticate your account to get started. To do so, click here. If you do not have an account number and need to register for an account with DEW, click here.



Business Tax Credits
New and existing businesses hiring new employees may be eligible for certain federal and state tax credits and other incentives depending on the nature of the job and industry and status of the employees hired to fill the jobs.  A brief description of some workforce related tax credits and incentive programs are provided in the links below.  For additional programs and the most up-to-date information, please contact your local SC Works Center.
