FOR EMPLOYERS

Fidelity Bonding: The Fidelity Bonding is a proven and effective job placement tool, which helps both employers and at-risk job applicants.  This unique job placement tool enables at-risk job applicants such as ex-offenders, recovering substance abusers and others with problematic work histories to obtain and keep a job.

Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC): This is a federal tax credit that serves as an incentive for an employer to hire people in certain target groups. WOTC helps both employers and job seekers. Employers save money as tax credits and help reduce their federal business tax liability.  Qualifying job seekers gain a much-needed advantage in the job market by being a new hire that belongs to one of the target groups.
