Employer Partnership Program

The Employer Partnership Program helps you grow your business by allowing you to train and hire
individuals tailored to your specific business needs. This program helps defray the cost of training new employees and gives unemployed workers enhanced skills and permanent, full-time employment.

  • The program is a cost effective way to staff positions with job-ready prescreened candidates.
  • There are no wage caps. Unlike many employment assistance programs, you may hire someone in a higher salary range for more complex positions.

How to participate

  • Your new hires must be unemployed residents of New Jersey who are currently receiving unemployment benefits or have exhausted their benefits.
  • Workers must be paid $10.00 an hour or more.
  • Positions must be for full-time and long-term employment.
  • Depending on the complexity of skills and the qualifications of your new employee, contract period can range from 12 or 26 weeks.

Starting the process is easy!

Your Business Representative or Veterans Business Representative can walk you through the simple application process and help you find the workers you need to rebuild.
