Why You Should Actively Recruit
Massive Talent Pool
Roughly 9% of the U.S. workforce has a felony criminal record with an additional estimated 626,000 people coming come from jail and prison every year. These individuals are willing and determined to find sustainable employment so that they can rebuild their lives.
The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal program that offers employers the opportunity to earn thousands of dollars in tax credits for each eligible, formerly incarcerated individual they hire.
Free Federal Bonding
The Federal Bonding Program (FBP) protects employers against losses caused by acts of newly hired, formerly incarcerated employees. The free program offered by the US Department of Labor significantly reduces risk by covering the first six months of employment at no cost to the job applicant or the employer.
