Item 3.01  Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of  Listing
 
As previously disclosed by General Employment Enterprises, Inc. (the ”Company”) in its Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 30, 2012,  the Company dismissed BDO USA, LLP as its independent registered public accounting firm on November 26, 2012, and on November 29, 2012 engaged Friedman LLP as its new independent registered public accounting firm.  As a result of this change, the Company has been delayed in the filing of its Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.  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 Letter further states that in order to maintain its listing, the Company must submit a plan to the NYSE MKT by January 31, 2013 advising the NYSE MKT of action it has taken or will take that will bring the Company in compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the NYSE MKT’s Company Guide by no later than April 17, 2013.  The Company and its new independent registered public accounting firm are working diligently to finalize the Company’s financial statements in order to allow the Company to file its annual report for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 as soon as possible.
 
On January 23, 2013, a press release announcing the receipt of the letter from the NYSE MKT, LLC was issued. A copy of the press release is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
