• On-the-Job Training funds


    The On-the-Job Training (OJT) program provides companies with financial reimbursement for the cost of training and supervising employees who, upon hire, have outdated or incomplete skill sets. Reimbursement pays for 50 percent of an employee's wages up to $3,000 and/or six months of work.

    The program is intended to give dislocated workers the updated skills they need to return to the workforce and to give employers the skilled employees they need to sustain and grow their businesses.

    Which companies are eligible to participate?

    ·  Private

    ·  No gambling establishments, swimming pools, aquariums, zoos or golf courses

    ·  Piece rate positions aren't allowed

    Which job seekers are eligible to participate?

    ·  Candidates largely include the long-term unemployed; Kinexus will determine eligibility and complete all paperwork on behalf of the employer.

    ·  Job seekers can't start work before OJT paperwork is signed.

    What is the risk to my company?

    If a new hire is not a good fit for your organization, your company will still receive reimbursement for the time the individual spent working for you.
