Section 34:15B-37 - Funding of on the job training.
Section: 34:15B-37: Funding of on the job training.
3. a. On the job training shall not be paid for with federal job training funds for any employment found by the commissioner to be of a level of skill and complexity too low to merit training.
b. The duration of on the job training for any individual shall not exceed the duration indicated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Information Network, or "O*NET," for the occupation for which the training is provided and shall in no case exceed 26 weeks. The department shall set the duration of on the job training for an individual for less than the indicated maximum, when training for the maximum duration is not warranted because of the level of the individual's previous training, education or work experience.
c. On the job training shall not be paid for with federal job training funds unless it is accompanied, concurrently or otherwise, by whatever amount of classroom-based or equivalent occupational training, remedial instruction or both, is deemed appropriate for the worker by the commissioner.
d. Each employer receiving federal job training funds for on the job training shall retain or place in permanent employment each trainee who successfully completes the training. The commissioner may, for a time period he deems appropriate, provide for the withholding of whatever portion he deems appropriate of the funding as a final payment for training, contingent upon the retention of a program completer as required pursuant to this section.
e. On the job training shall not be paid for with federal job training funds unless the trainee is provided benefits, pay and working conditions at a level and extent not less than the benefits and working conditions of other trainees or employees of the trainee's employer with comparable skills, responsibilities, experience and seniority.
