Training-on-the-job (TOJ)

By mmuise

The training-on-the-job program is an incentive for employers to get financial assistance for employee training. The TOJ program is designed to help people who are no longer able to go back to their regular job and employer. The worker develops skills and gains work experience while the employer receives financial and other support from WCB during the new employee’s training period.

Comments on Funding:

1. As part of the TOJ program, employers will be reimbursed a percentage of the salary they pay their new employee while they learn the new job.
2. The percentages of reimbursement varies and depends on the related skills and abilities the new employee brings to the position. These amounts are negotiated with the case manager or service provider.
3. The duration and amount of financial assistance varies and depends on the skills and abilities needed for the position. Typically TOJ programs run up to nine months, depending on the complexity of the skills needed to perform the job and amount of training required.
