Job Placement for Individuals With Disabilities
South Bay Vocational Center has been providing job development and placement services for individuals with disabilities for over 60 years.
We have successfully placed individuals with
disabilities at various locations stretching from Los Angeles County to the San Fernando Valley.
We have placed in the past individuals at the following companies:
South Bay Vocational Center has two programs that procure jobs for individuals with disabilities in the community. The individuals that we serve may either work with a group or by themselves.
The Group Placement Program is designed to provide employment options that enable individuals with disabilities to work in integrated settings in the community. The focus of this program is to have an employee of South Bay Vocational Center who will be the liaison between the employer and the individuals who he or she is supervising. Our employee will be also doing on the job training with the individuals 100% of the time in order for the group to complete the job duties with the highest quality.
The Cost for Group Placement
The cost for a group is $32.00 per hour for the entire group. The employer will only pay $32.00 per hour for one group of 3 individuals and 1 job coach totaling 4 workers for one flat rate. The group can perform many different job duties. These individuals will be covered by South Bay Vocational Center Worker’s Compensation Insurance and General Liability Insurance.
The Individual Placement Program is design to promote companies to hire individuals with disabilities to fill their job opening. These individuals will be place on the employer’s payroll and South Bay Vocational Center will provide job coaching that will fade over time depending on the individual’s capability and job performs for free. Companies that hire our individuals will receive a tax incentive from the government.
Work Opportunity Credit for Individual Placements
The Work Opportunity Credit provides eligible employers with a tax credit up to 40 percent of the first $6,000 of first-year wages of a new employee if the employee is part of a “targeted group.” An employee with a disability is one of the targeted groups for the Work Opportunity Credit, provided the appropriate government agencies have certified the employee as disabled. The credit is available to the employer once the employee has worked for at least 120 hours or 90 days (Form 5884).
