Frequently Asked Questions for Employers

What is the benefit for the employer by participating in the Tennessee Youth Employment Program grant?

The employer will get a part time employee that the grant will pay. This might be directly to the youth or as a reimbursement. Also, this could potentially lead to a future full-time employee, once the maximum payout has been reached by the participant.

Who oversees the youth while they work for a company?

The youth is the employee of the company, and the company would be in charge as it is any of their other employees. The State of Tennessee does not manage or assist with hiring or firing of participants that are enrolled in this program.

Do Federal and State laws apply to this grant?

Yes. All Federal and State child laws apply to this grant.

How many participants can work for my company?

We do not have a minimum or maximum number, but we want to ensure that work is available for the participants and there is room for proper management by the employer.
