Offender Employment and Opportunities Unit
The MDOC can help employers find candidates with a wide variety of skill and training, including training in skilled trades for a number of high demand occupations. There are also incentives available to employers that hire justice-involved individuals, including the Fidelity Bonding program which provides coverage against theft, larceny, forgery and embezzlement for the first 6 months of employment, free of charge and the Work Opportunity Tax Credit which provides eligible employers with a federal tax credit based on the eligibility of the employee.
Please note, the OEOU can only work with prospective employment candidates that are currently under the jurisdiction of the MDOC. Individuals who are not under the jurisdiction of the MDOC, but have a felony record, should seek assistance from their local MichiganWorks! or other community employment agencies.
If you are an employer or training school that is interested in partnering with us, please reach out to the Workforce Development Specialist that covers your area for more information.
