Through an OJT contract with ICF, employers are provided a direct reimbursement of a trainee’s hourly starting wage. Reimbursement is done on a bi-weekly or monthly basis (per the preference of the employer) and a percentage of the trainee’s wages (excluding tips, overtime, workers compensation and other fringe benefits) are reimbursed to the employer. Employers with under 100 employees are eligible for 75% of wages paid to the trainee during the OJT. Employers with 100 or more employees are eligible for 50% wage reimbursement. There is an expectation that the employer will retain the trainee after the training period has ended. The contract is limited to the time required for the individual to become proficient in the occupation of training, not to exceed six months.
