Adding and Managing an Employer Profile

In saying that Job Ready has the ability to feed information to ESS about a new Employer record. Please see step 8.

Note: There is no availability to merge Employer records. Should a record have been entered manually and a download from ESS occurs a duplicate record will appear.
