§9-9-13. Subsidized employment.
(a) To the extent that resources are available, an employer
may be paid a subsidy by the department to employ a parent or
caretaker-relative of an at-risk family if the employer agrees to
hire the WV works program participant at the end of the subsidized
period. If the employer does not hire the participant at the end
of the subsidized period, the program may not use that employer for
subsidized employment for the next twelve months.
(b) If the department determines that an employer has
demonstrated a pattern of discharging employees hired pursuant to
the provisions of this section subsequent to the expiration of the
subsidized period without good cause, the employer shall no longer
be eligible for participation in the subsidized employment program
for a period to be determined by the department.
