Individuals who have the basic skills, but lack sufficient work experience to meet employer requirements, may be placed in a job placement with your agency. Through a CCWORKS contract, the employer agrees to provide the participant with on-the-job work experience and training in exchange for a wage subsidy. CCWORKS positions are expected to result in permanent employment. The employer must pay the participant a wage comparable to regular employees in similarly classified positions.
My business is located outside of Contra Costa County, but I am willing to hire CCWORKS job seekers. Can I participate?
Please contact us. We may be able to approve your participation; depending on the area your business is located. Do I have the opportunity to interview and select the employee?
Yes. We send pre-screened candidates, and your agency will select and hire the candidate of your choice.
