ON THE JOB TRAINING

Louisiana businesses may receive up to 50% reimbursement of training costs when you hire and train new employees and for promoting current employees in a new position that requires additional skills. OJT benefits employers by tailoring a training program to their specific needs, especially in the area of introducing new technologies or procedures. Training can even be offered to incumbent employees in order to upgrade their skills and knowledge.

WORK OPPORTUNITY TAX CREDIT

Private sector businesses can earn income tax credits by hiring individuals from nine target groups, including: veterans, TANF recipients, SNAP (food stamp) recipients, summer youth, vocational rehabilitation referrals, SSI recipients, ex-felons and other qualifying groups.

JOB FAIRS

Louisiana Workforce and Acadiana Works host several job fairs and events during the year to link employers with potential employees. Ask us about the next Job fair in your region and other events that can increase your exposure to employers.

VETERANS WORKFORCE INVESTMENT PROGRAM

An employer friendly benefit for hiring veterans most in need of employment. The Vow to Hire Heros Act of 2011 expands the Work Opportunity Tax Credit to provide incentives for private sector businesses who hire eligible veterans.
