Employer Recruitments free office space is available in any of the CT Department of Labor/CTWorks offices across the state. Great for saving time, testing and screening candidates. Contact your local CT DOL Business Services Consultant.

Job Fairs - each year DOL runs professional job fairs all over CT including the "Heroes 4 Hire" job fair for employers seeking to connect with Veterans. Unlike other job fairs that are "profit driven," our main concern is connecting highly skilled and qualified job seekers with employment opportunities that local companies have to offer.


Hiring Incentives

STEP UP Subsidized Training and Employment Program an initiative of the Connecticut Department of Labor and the state's five Workforce Investment Boards. Step Up offers two programs: the Wage Subsidy Program and the Small Manufacturer Training Grant Program. Each program offers employer incentives to hire new employees and create jobs.

Eligible companies, defined as a small business or manufacturer with not more than 100 employees, can apply for one program for each new hire an employer cannot use multiple programs for one new hire.

The program was expanded in June 2012 to include the Unemployed Armed Forces Member Subsidized Training and Employment Program. This program, similar to Wage Subsidy program, is available to eligible employers of any size that hire an unemployed veteran.

Work Opportunity Tax Credit Use this federal tax credit to boost your bottom line! There are no limits on the number of qualified employees you can hire. Minimal paperwork required.

Training Grants

Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) OJT - CT DOL, under the Trade Adjustment Assistance gives businesses funds to provide OJT to TAA-eligible individuals to train them in a skilled occupation.
