How "Georgia Work$" Can Help Your Small Business

The State of Georgia has implemented a new program that is designed to get people off the unemployed rolls.  It also turned out to be a good thing for small businesses.  The program allows someone who is unemployed to be hired while continuing to collect unemployment benefits.  An employer can hire someone who is collecting unemployment benefits for 24 hours per week, for up to eight weeks without having to pay them.

It gives the employee the opportunity to receive training and determine an area of interest to pursue a career.  After the eight weeks the employer can decide whether or not to hire the individual on a part-time or full-time basis.  There is no obligation to hire any given trainee, but there must be a current vacancy listed with the GDOL.
Available to small, new, and expanding businesses   Employers do not have to provide Workers Compensation coverage.  This is provided by GDOL.  Another advantage is that employers do not have a tax burden associated with the employees. 
This program is also available to for-profit and non-profit businesses.
