  • DESCRIPTION The Department of Workforce Services is committed to helping Utah businesses. We know the challenges you face as an employer. Whether looking for employees, improving your workplace or facing the possibility of a layoff, we can help.

  • DOWNSIZING SOLUTIONS: Help with federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notice (WARN) Act requirements to notify affected employees Economic information that may help deter a layoff Workshops and tools to help your affected employees cope with job loss and successfully prepare for finding new employment Assistance with filing a petition for federal Trade Act assistance if layoffs are due to loss of business to companies outside the United States
  • BACK TO WORK PROGRAM: A wage subsidy of up to $2,000 per eligible participant will be provided to the employer for each employee they hire and retain for three months The program will target two groups: 1) Unemployment Insurance claimants who are currently receiving UI benefits; and 2) 18-24 year old youth
  •  FEDERAL WORK OPPORTUNITY TAX CREDIT (WOTC): A federal tax credit for hiring individuals from targeted groups Some of the targeted groups include Veterans, youth, individuals receiving Social Security, Food Stamps, or state financial assistance, ex-felons, and participants in the Vocational Rehabilitation program Annual tax credits start at $1200 and depending on participation may go as high as $9000
  • ON-THE-JOB-TRAINING The (OJT) Program offers reimbursement to employers who provide job training for participants Employers will be reimbursed for up to 50 percent of the participant wages during training Employers will obtain employees that are trained in the methods of your company, at a reduced cost DWS will screen applicants for you, using the criteria you provide, and refer potential employees to you for your final interview and selection
