Dayton, Nevada – Dayton Chamber of Commerce, Healthy Communities Coalition, and Lyon Human Services are sponsoring a special workshop for employers in the region, focusing on financial incentives for employers to hire disabled Veterans, teens, TANF and Social Security Income recipients, etc.
The workshop for area employers will highlight workforce opportunities through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), Lyon County Employment Program, Comstock Youth Works, and other programs.
For example, the WOTC rewards employers who hire eager-to-work individuals who may nevertheless have a hard time securing employment, such as disabled Veterans, recipients of Supplemental Security Income or Social Security, etc. Through the WOTC program, employers who hire people from such target groups can earn a significant tax credit. The process is simple with minimal paperwork on the employer’s part. Employers decide who to hire and can receive the tax savings on an unlimited number of employees hired under the program.
Comstock Youth Works is another example of great opportunities for employers. Teen interns learn on the job and work hard for area employers who give them a chance as summer interns. CYW covers the teen’s hourly wage, workers comp, and liability insurance.
The presentation takes place at the Greater Nevada Credit Union at on Saturday, August 12th from 11am to 1pm. Light refreshments will be offered. Contact Quest Lakes at HCC (775) 287-7598 or Denise Crites at the Dayton Chamber at (775) 246-7909 for more details.
