On-the-Job Training (OJT) is an opportunity for you, the employer, to mentor a person with a disability, helping them develop the skills needed to realize their career goals and potential, with no liability to you regarding insurance or wages.  During the OJT, the trainee interacts on a regular basis with employees who do not have disabilities, hold a regular position, and is paid no less than minimum wage through our company, employU in cooperation with a program through the State of Florida.  On-the-Job Training helps people with disabilities get used to the employment environment, while gaining valuable work experience.
An Employer Working With EmployU
When working with employU, you are not just gaining a client-employer relationship with a highly motivated potential employee, but also, a team of people, who support the client to be successful.  After the OJT has been completed, if a job offer is extended, we have an experienced, professional staff who are certified to assist in the transition, and provide additional training or coaching at that time.
