WIPP Partnership for Employment Public/Private Initiative

 
Partnership for Employment is an exciting new public/private initiative between Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), the Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The purpose of this initiative is to assist federal workers in finding alternative work opportunities and to assist small businesses with the cost of recruiting, training and hiring these individuals through an existing government program, "Assisted Reemployment”.

Under this program, private employers who hire federal civilian employees who are currently receiving workers compensation benefits, may be eligible for a salary subsidy of up to 75% of wages paid (the exact amount and duration of the subsidy will depend on several factors, including the wage for the job and the amount of compensation benefit the employee is now receiving and training needs). To find out more information on Assisted Reemployment, please see Assisted Reemployment Overview

If you would like to post an available position on a job board for viewing by Federal Agencies, please provide the requested information on the following page of this survey. If a candidate is found whose skills and qualifications match your needs, you will be contacted by a representative from the candidate’s agency.
