Press Release: $ 25,000 Fidelity Bonding Program Encourage Michigan Employers to Hire Ex-offenders

Press Release
Release Date: March 5, 2015
Media Contact: CJ Eason, Job Doctor,

$ 25,000 Fidelity Bonding Program Encourage Michigan Employers to Hire Ex-offenders

It is a fact that securing employment in a fluctuating economy can be difficult for job seekers with a clean criminal background but even tougher for ex-offenders seeking a second chance to reenter work society. There is no shortage of list circulating the internet and probation offices highlighting felony friendly employers that claim ex-offenders can secure employment with companies open to hiring people with blemished backgrounds, in most cases these list are a dead-end and discouraging. The looming pressure to obtain employment for ex-offenders is haunting especially when the alternative is returning to prison, one and eight people return to a life of crime, drugs or prison within 30 to 45 days after release. 

Michigan employers can receive tax incentives and business protection when they employ ex-offenders, former substance abusers, and other individuals who have questionable backgrounds as high-risk and potentially untrustworthy workers. The United States Department of Labor rewards employers with a $2,400 work opportunity tax credit for hiring ex-felons 1 year after release from prison or conviction.  

Michigan employers apprehensive about hiring at risk employees can receive up to $25,000 for losses that are incurred as a result of hiring a high-risk employee when they participate in the Fidelity Bonding Program an incentive to encourage employers to hire employees who might otherwise be denied employment. Michigan employers receive protection against dishonest acts of theft, larceny, forgery and embezzlement committed by a bonded employees. The Fidelity Bonding Program is free of charge to employers for the first six months of employment.

Ex-offenders seeking viable income should consider employment in the top five career fields:

Skilled Trades Jobs. Despite the high unemployment rate, skilled workers are hard to come by and therefore always in high demand. Many companies are in need of tradespeople who can build, repair, or maintain equipment a trained skilled tradesperson is always welcome in manufacturing, construction, automotive repair, home improvement and many other industries.

Engineering and Technology Jobs. As more public money is spent of developing national security and a more adequate infrastructure of roads, bridges, airports, tunnels, water supply and sewage systems opportunities for engineering technicians is growing. Ex-offenders that have interest in math, science and technology should pursue careers in drafting, electrical installation, laser technology and aerospace technology – training is available at Oakland Community College and

Production Jobs. During the employment crisis many companies offered production and machine workers a buyout or early retirement, now the economy is improving the need for production workers is serious. Ex-offenders can look forward to earning $ 10.00 to $18.00 hourly as a machinist, tool and die maker, welder, brazing worker and machine operator.

Transportation Jobs: If you are re-entering the job market with little work experience, few marketable skills and red flags in your background, consider getting started in the transportation industry. Individuals with a clean driving record and ability to pass MDOT drug testing requirements will find success as a truck driver, motor coach driver, rail car porter, and courier. Employment of bus drivers is expected to increase through the year 2019, primary to meet the growing transportation needs in downtown Detroit.

Sales and Media Jobs. The launch of small businesses, home-based businesses and the expansion of existing companies offer people re-entering the workforce a variety of sales and media positions. Even in tough times, companies need to develop new business, and maintain client relationships. The most recession-proof occupations are advertising sales, retail sales, corporate sales, radio operations, graphic design, video game design and insurance sales. Ex-offenders with knowledge of social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram will find numerous job opportunities in blogging, affiliate marketing, seo/smo marketing and internet sales support many small businesses and large corporations are following the social media trend and seek people with knowledge to help build their online presence.
