McLeod PAGE 7 Employers (Pd. Pol. Adv. by Trent Lewis, Florala, Alabama) Meet For Programs A meeting was called last week at the Alabama State Em- ployment Service office in An- ~dalusia by Mr. C. R. Trousdale, Manager, to discuss employee training programs with a group of employers. The primary purpose was to make it easier for an employer to hire and train a veteran. One of the programs avail- able is called the Job Optional Program (JOP). An employer hires people for training under this program when the Employ- ment Service certifies the eli- gibility of the trainee. The em- ployer pays trainees just as he would any other employee, starting at the minimum wage or above. The skill level de- termines the maximum time of training authorized for a parti- cular occupation, and a reim- bursement rate to the employer for training is figured on one- half of the starting salary. An employer can normally hire up to 5 people under this pro- gram, if no more than 25% of his total number of employ- ees. The Job Optional Program is based on a 40-hour, 5-day work week. Fifty (50%) percent of the trainees under JOP must be dis- advantaged. Present rules for funding and effecting a program with disadvantaged people in training positions allows re- cently separated veterans to fill these positions even if they are not disadvantaged. A disadvan- taged person is defined as a per- son with a specified low family income according to the number nnouncemen COMMISSIONER # 1 per, ~oute 2, Opp, Alabama) FOR MEMBER BOARD OF COMMISSIONER DISTRICT ONE It has been my privilege and pleasure to have served you as County Commissioner, District No. One for the past seven years and one month.

A contract is made with the Alabama State Employment Service and paid out of Mont- gomery -- not Washington -- although Federal funds are used. All employers are eli- gible for certification except government agencies. The higher the starting salary, the more favorable contract an em- ployer can secure, and three basic records are involved: First, the Employment Form, When you plan a trip to a tropical country, it's a good which is executed by the Ala-~ idea to get whatever inocu- lations are appropriate for the region you'll be in, whether or notthe countries you're visiting require such inocu- lationor not. Ask your familyphysician about this. bama State Employment Ser- vice; second, the Monthly Bil- ling Invoice, sent in by the em- ployer; and third, the Termina- tion Form. The employer re- cords are now open to a review at times during the course of training, and at the time a con- tract is negotiated, an adequate training schedule is furnished with a copy given to the trainee. A second program is designed for a larger number of trainees which is called Job Opportunity in the Business Sector through the National Alliance of Bus- inessmen (JOBS-NAB). JOBS- NAB contracts made with em- ployers include on-the-job training (OJT), plus job related education (classroom training). Special counseling, orientation, and supportive services, which ~ould consist of child care, transportation, medical costs, are also available. The employ- er can be paid for half of the training time of the worker while on the job, as well as the worker's full wage while in the job related education. The contract also provides pay- ment to the employer for the other services mentioned. For instance, an employer who hires a disadvantaged person for The Chinses published a 10,000 word dictionary more than 2,~,00 years ago.
