Update on WOTC Program Status

The legislative authority for the WOTC program, which had expired on December 31, 2014, has been extended. President Obama signed H.R. 2029, “Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2016” on December 18, 2015. The current Act extends the WOTC program through December 31, 2019, and retroactively reauthorizes the program for new employees hired on or after January 1, 2015.

The U.S. Department of Labor has now issued reauthorization guidance to the state workforce agencies and the employer community.
