Overcoming Employment Barriers Lunch & Learn

12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Did you know that as an employer you may receive financial incentives for hiring job seekers who have barriers to finding employment?

Partnership Grand Strand has teamed up with SC Works and the Waccamaw Council of Governments to bring to you a lunch and learn on how to capitalize on these incentives.

Learn about the benefits of hiring veterans, second-chance employees and those with disabilities.

Topics covered will include:

  • Work Opportunity Tax Credit - Available to employers for hiring individuals with employment barriers.
  • Federal Bonding - For high-risk individuals with background or credit issues. Federal bonding will provide security for up to six months at no charge to the employer.
  • Paid work experience/internships - Paid work experience/internships are a planned, structured learning experience that takes place in a workplace for a limited period. It is designed to provide hands on experience for individuals who are lacking skills within a certain industry.
  • On The Job Training - Designed to fulfill the needs of local employers by allowing them to train new hires while they are working and learning job skills. Employers make all the hiring decisions, tailor the training and can be reimbursed 50% or more of the trainee’s hourly wages.
