TEF Member Bulletin

Fraud Alert

We recently discovered that some applicants have responded to job advertisements posted on Craigslist and other websites by vendors claiming to be affiliated with 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East or the 1199SEIU Training and Employment Funds, only to be asked to pay a fee for the job referral or specialized certifications that will guarantee them a job. These vendors are not affiliated with the Employment Center or the Union: Do not work with any vendor who asks for payment of any kind.

The 1199SEIU Training and Employment Funds will never charge you fees for job referrals.
