Abstract

This article makes use of a unique personnel data set to explore job separation behavior among workers who qualify for theWork Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC). Results indicate that WOTC workers do not exhibit overall higher turnover than similar non-WOTC workers. The tenures of the two groups differ, however, when calculated by reasons for separation. Evidence tends to suggest that the availability of a variety of job assistance programs might be useful in increasing workers’ tenure in jobs.
