‘Back to Work’ program offers employer incentive
Pauken called <IT Reporter Friday to discuss the Texas Back to Work program.
The program offers employers wage subsidies for hiring qualified out-ofwork Texans.
“We will help people get back to work by helping employers defray part of the cost of wages and on-the-job training,” he said.
Through the new program, some employers who hire people receiving unemployment benefits can receive a portion of the new employees’ wages for a set period of time.
Employers can receive up to $2,000 in wage subsidies if they continue to employ the formerly out-of-work employees for at least 120 days.
Employers interested in participating should contact their local workforce development boards to learn about all options available in their areas.
Employers also are encouraged to take advantage of WorkInTexas.com, TWC’s online job matching Web site where more than 250,000 employers already are registered to post job openings and find great employees.
Local workforce board contact information can be found on the TWC Web site at http://www.twc.state.tx.us/dirs/wdbs/wdbmap. html or by calling 512-463-8556.
