On the Job Training (OJT)

Funds are available to help businesses defray the costs of hiring and training staff referred from various OEWD programs.  Employers are compensated for the extraordinary costs of training associated with the hiring of the new employee, at a rate of 50% of the employee’s wages for an agreed upon training period up to a maximum of $6,000.


Layoff Response Assistance

OEWD can also provide services through our Rapid Response Program that will assist you in easing the transition of your workforce when a downsizing event cannot be averted.  Staff will conduct on-site orientations with our partners from the Employment Development Department and other appropriate agencies to inform your employees about services that can assist them.

Tax Credits and Incentives

Certain employers can be eligible for thousands of dollar in local, state and Federal tax credits and incentives based on hiring as well as other business expenses.


Federal Bonding

 The Federal Bonding Program allows employers to confidently hire at risk applicants knowing they will be protected against acts of dishonesty. Being bonded allows applicants with less than perfect histories the opportunity to prove to a new employer that they are a valuable addition to their workforce while providing the employer with a “safety net”.
