One-stop career centers (or One-Stop centers) are public employment offices in the United States. They are workforce information and education offices set up by Workforce Investment Boards as directed by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. The Workforce Investment Act was repealed and replaced by the 2013 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act with an annual budget of $3.3 billion.[1]

One-stop career centers are implemented in all US States under a variety of different local names. CareerOneStop is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. CareerOneStop is a partner of the American Job Center network.[2]
