The Federal Bonding Program assists “at-risk” job seekers who may have a risk factor in their personal background. Job seekers who may benefit from this program include:
- a recovering substance abuser
- welfare recipients
- someone who has poor credit or who has declared bankruptcy
- a person who was dishonorably discharged from the military
- economically disadvantaged youth who lack a work history
Individuals who may be eligible for a WOTC target group may also have a risk factor as listed above and, therefore, may benefit from The Federal Bonding Program. Employers are encouraged to contact the State WOTC Coordinator to learn how The Federal Bonding Program may be used along with WOTC.
