Justice Involved- CORI Friendly- Job Fair
April 9, 2018 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Brockton War Memorial Building
156 West Elm St. Brockton, MA
After hosting several successful CORI friendly job fairs within the Plymouth County Correctional Facility, Sheriff Joseph D. McDonald has partnered with Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz in sponsoring a CORI friendly job fair hosted by Brockton Mayor Bill Carpenter. The job fair will be held at The Brockton War Memorial Building on April 9, 2018 from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The job fair is for individuals who have been or are currently involved with the justice system. In addition to these individuals, we will be welcoming all CORI friendly job seeking residents from communities throughout Plymouth County.
With studies showing significant reductions in recidivism rates for employed individuals, we feel this is a great opportunity for us to partner together in an effort to make our communities safer. In addition to this great opportunity for employers to give back to their communities some other opportunities that will be available are:
* The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC). WOTC is a federal tax credit available to employers that hire individuals from certain target groups who are facing barriers to employment.
*The Federal Bonding Program no cost fidelity bonds that guarantee honesty for “At-Risk” hard-to-place job seekers. The bonds cover the first six months of employment.
Participation in the job fair is free. We do expect significant interest from employers looking to participate.
