WANTED's historical database of 500 Million Job Openings provides evidence of labor market conditions in employment litigation
ANN ARBOR, MI and QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Forensic JobStats and WANTED Technologies announce that they have partnered to provide hiring demand data and research to the legal profession. Forensic JobStats (www.forensicjobstats.com) will rely on its vast experience in the field of employment research to select, analyze and provide data from WANTED's historical database of more than 500 million online job ads from over 1500 sources posted since 2005. WANTED Technologies, (TSX-V: WAN), www.wantedtech.com, is the leading source of real-time employment market information.
"WANTED Technologies has a unique and detailed database going back to 2005," said Dr. Malcolm Cohen, Co-founder of Forensic JobStats. "At Forensic JobStats, we are asked to help our clients analyze conditions in the job market as they were, for instance, two or three years ago. In the past we could have found this information in copies of old newspapers and on microfilm, but WANTED's database makes this process much more efficient and comprehensive."
"Forensic JobStats has identified a way to bring more clarity and accountability to the legal process," said Bruce Murray, CEO and President of WANTED. "Dr. Cohen and his team are highly-regarded experts in this field of employment litigation, and we are pleased to be working with them."
Often in employment litigation, plaintiffs and defendants disagree about what the actual employment opportunities are for an individual at a given time and in a given location. Traditionally, newspaper help wanted ads provided the best way to assess the availability of work. Searching old newspaper classified sections was extremely labor-intensive and provided an incomplete picture of employment conditions.
"WANTED's database of online job ads represents a much more efficient source of information to analyze in a legal context," said Dr. Cohen. "With the WANTED database, our analysts can provide plaintiffs and defendants with an objective and comprehensive record of hiring demand, based on advertised job openings."
WANTED's database is available via WANTED Analytics(TM) Apps, (www.wantedanalytics.com) a platform of online data and SaaS-based analytical solutions for the employment market. Forensic JobStats' analysts and consultants provide solutions for litigation, including expert testimony.
