Major Employers – Employer Details FAQ
The information for individual employers displayed in the Major Employers lists and Find Employers tool is collected and distributed by the infogroup, a private firm that maintains a database on businesses that is used by state employment agencies, including the Employment Development Department, under contract with the US Employment and Training Administration. The database is proprietary, and as a result, the EDD - Labor Market Information Division cannot alter the information listed.
How does infogroup compile their data?
Each day, infogroup data specialists scour thousands of sources to add new data, update existing records, and eliminate duplicates. They call companies on a regular basis to verify the information.
The information sources include:
- Phone books
- Annual reports
- Business directories
- Public record data from county courthouse filings
- Securities and Exchange Commission, and Secretary of State corporations data
- Listings for new business registrations and utility hookups
None of the data in the "Find Employers" tool comes from information collected from employers by EDD. The data collected by EDD is confidential and are not shared with the public.
How can I update the information for my business?
Employers can change and update their own record. Requests for changes and additions can be sent to infogroup at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 800.555.5211 (ask for the Government Division).
When you contact the infogroup, you may be asked to provide your employer ID Number. The employer ID Number can be obtained from the link (URL) for your business.
Example: Employer ID
While this will change the information within 30-60 days, we receive an updated file only twice a year. We cannot guarantee when your information will be corrected on our website.
