OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --General Employment
Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE MKT: JOB) (the "Company") today announced that on
January 17, 2013, the Company received a letter (the "Letter") from NYSE MKT,
LLC (the "NYSE MKT") which stated, among other things, that the Company has
failed to timely file its annual report with the SEC for its fiscal year ended
September 30, 2012, and that the timely filing of this report is a condition
to the Company's continued listing on the NYSE MKT pursuant to Sections 134
and 1101 of the NYSE MKT'S Company Guide (the "Company Guide"). The Letter
further states that in order to maintain its listing, the Company must submit
a plan (the "Plan") to the NYSE MKT by January 31, 2013 advising of action the
Company has taken or will take that will bring the Company into compliance
with Sections 134 and 1101 of the Company Guide by no later than April 17,
2013.

The Company intends to timely submit its Plan to the NYSE MKT and will
continue to work diligently with its new independent registered public
accounting firm to finalize the Company's financial statements to enable the
Company to file its annual report for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2012
prior to April 17, 2013. If the NYSE MKT determines that the Company has made
a reasonable demonstration of its ability to return to compliance with the
continued listing standards, the NYSE MKT may accept the Plan and the Company
would then be able to continue its listing during the Plan period, during
which time the Company will be subject to periodic reviews by the NYSE MKT.
If the NYSE MKT does not accept the Plan, the Company will be subject to
delisting proceedings.If the Plan is accepted, but the Company is not in
compliance with all the continued listing standards of the Company Guide by
April 17, 2013, or if the Company does not make progress consistent with the
Plan during the Plan period, the NYSE MKT may initiate delisting
proceedings.The Company may appeal a determination by the NYSE MKT to
initiate delisting proceedings in accordance with Section 1010 and Part 12 of
the Company Guide.There can be no assurance that the Company's Plan will be
accepted by the NYSE MKT, or that, if accepted, the Company will be able to
successfully implement the Plan and return to compliance with the NYSE MKT's
continued listing standards within the required time period.

The Company's common stock continues to trade on the NYSE MKT stock exchange
under the symbol "JOB," but will become subject to the trading symbol
extension ".LF" to denote non-compliance with the NYSE MKT's continued listing
standards.
