On-the-Job Training (OJT) is an opportunity for business partners to mentor a person with a disability, helping them develop the skills needed to realize their career goals. There is no liability to our business partners regarding insurance or wages as employU is the employer of record during a client’s OJT experience.
Once a client completes an OJT, the business partner may extend a job offer without incurring any fees from employU. Additionally, our team will assist in the transition and provide additional training or coaching if needed.
The average length of an OJT is six to eight weeks. Training length is based on employer needs, and difficulty of the job. Although employers are not required to offer a job at the completion of an OJT, extending a job offer to a candidate is always a consideration.
