Historical Note

Department of Labor
The Department of Labor started as a “Bureau of Labor Statistics” and it continues to fulfill this function as an arm of the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics by collecting, analyzing and reporting workforce data. The Bureau began in 1873 but disappeared by 1875. The legislature reconstituted it in 1885 and in 1901 added the Factory Inspector. In 1915 legislation combined this post into a Department of Labor and Factory Inspection and in 1950, the agency was first called by its current name, the Department of Labor. The Department is headed by a Commissioner appointed by the Governor with the advice of either House of the General Assembly. It consists of several major divisions, boards and commissions including the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, Regulation of Wages, Connecticut State Board of Labor Relations and the Employment Security Division.

United States Employment Service
After the United States entered World War I, Connecticut, like other states, had difficulty maintaining a constant pool of industrial and agricultural workers. Military service took many men and women from their normal occupations at the same time that the need for factory and farm workers grew. In addition, some ethnic populations, decreased as families returned to their countries of origin. In response, the Commissioner of Labor and Factory Inspection directed five Free Public Employment and many commercial employment agencies, but these were insufficient to deal with the demand for labor.

On the national level, the Council of National Defense and the Federal Department of Labor jointly addressed the problem. In early June 1917, Federal appropriations supported an expansion of the "labor exchanges" in the states. In January 1918, the Department of Labor created the United States Employment Service to administer and coordinate the program's expansion. Meantime the national agencies communicated with the states, urging Councils of Defense to take parallel action.

The Connecticut Council of Defense created a Manpower and Labor Committee in May 1917 but delayed until December creating an Employment Service in the State. State funds supplemented federal money. A "dollar-a-year man," Leo Korper, served as Federal Director for Connecticut when the Service began operations in February 1918.1

The service in Connecticut reported to both the Council of Defense and to the United States Employment Service in Washington.2 It operated a headquarters in Hartford, employed up to 18 employment officers in the larger cities3, and formed supporting group of Community Labor Boards. It had a Woman's Division and maintained cooperative relations with several United States war agencies. The Service also administered the programs of the United States Public Service Reserve that enrolled volunteers willing to transfer to war work; the United States War Service Exchange that located candidates for technical positions in the War Department; and the Civilian Personnel Division of the Ordnance Department that found workers and placed them in appropriate war industry and essential agriculture jobs.

At the war's end in November 1918, war contracts decreased and the Employment Service faced the challenge of finding jobs rather than finding workers. By Christmas, the post-war recession put 13,000 people out of work at the same time demobilized military personnel began returning and looking for jobs.

"Old Plant" Files, cica 1934-1982, Accession: 1989-052, 42 cubic feet
Investigations carried out Offsite Storage by the Department of Health and after 1973, by the Department of Labor's Division of Occupational Safety and Health, into complaints by workers about conditions and management personnel. Includes such items as copies of reports of investigations recorded on official departmental forms, correspondence with the companies, employees, and/or physicians and internal departmental memos.
Arranged alphabetically by name of company and within the file, chronologically by date of filing. Index cards arranged alphabetically by company name.
Researchers should contact State Archives staff to request a search of the index. If a file or files for a requested company is found, staff will produce a redacted copy on which all personally identifiable medical information is excised. Depending on the number and size of the file(s), this process may take several weeks. Since the redacting may require that staff produce an intermediate copy, the State Library will charge for all duplication required to fill copy orders.
Restricted: State statutes prohibit disclosure of personally identifiable medical information.
