On-The-Job Training Assistance BY BOB FICK~ IDAHO DEPT. OF LABOR Incentives from the Idaho Department of Labor for businesses to hire unemployed workers and train them on the job are benefiting both employers and their employees. Under the on-the- job training program, employers hiring new workers who have been laid off or displaced by foreign or other competition can get at least 50 percent of the new employee's wages paid for by the department for up to six months of training, depending on the occupation and the trainee's skill level. The jobs have to pay at least $10 an hour and include employer-subsidized health care. Workers completing the training period are hired permanently by the employers. Over the past two years more than 70 percent of the workers went on to become permanent employees. "This incentive is putting quality employees back to work with skills that increase their value to their employers, and employers are seeing that value, Department Director Roger B. Madsen said. Employers interested in participating in the on-the-job training incentive can contact any of the department's 25 local offices to learn if the jobs they are planning to fill or the employees they want to hire are eligible. In the 24 months through June 2011, over 100 workers participated in the program with 78 hired permanently by their employers at an average wage of $16.24 an hour. The Idaho Department of Labor has put new emphasis on business services,and making employers aware of the OJT program is an effort to help them take full advantage of Idaho's economic recovery. "If a business calls us with a potential employee, we can determine eligibility over the phone:' Madsen said. "If the potential worker is eligible, a Labor consultant will complete the paperwork for the employee's enrollment."
