The Montgomery County, Ohio Ex-Offender Reentry Policy Board and the Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry welcomed U.S. Senator Rob Portman and U.S. Congressman Mike Turner to Dayton to discuss benefits available to employers who hire individuals returning to our community from prison.
U.S. District Judge Walter H. Rice and Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman, Co-chairs of the Montgomery County Reentry Policy Board, joined Senator Portman, Congressman Turner, Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce President Phil Parker and business owners for a media event held at the Dayton Convention Center.
Montgomery County, on an annual basis, sees approximately 1,700 to 2,000 women and men return to the community from state and federal prisons to every zip code in the county.
Intense teaching and coaching for ex-offenders working to change their lives for the better have shown significant results since the start of Montgomery Countys Reentry Program in December 2010. Employment is one of the keys to that success.
Montgomery County employers who work through the Office of Reentry can hire ex-offenders who have soft skills training and employers are eligible for tax credits and incentives, said County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman. Work opportunities provide hope and a chance to achieve success for ex-offenders who have made the decision to turn their lives around.
Employers who hire ex-offenders through the MCOER are guaranteed to be matched with individuals who have:
Soft Skill Training
Access to in-prison training and state issued certificates of achievement and employability
A pre-screen drug test
Other incentives that benefit employers:
A Federal Bonding program for ex-felons for up to $ 5,000.
The Federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit available after the employee works the required number of hours, either full or part time.
Access to a company (WOTC Solutions) that will take responsibility for all required tax credit paperwork and reporting. They charge a fee from the tax credit so the risk to the employer is minimal.
When ex-offenders partner with community resources to turn their lives around, they have a greatly enhanced chance of avoiding criminal behavior and, in many cases, are able to gain employment, housing and reunification with their family, said U.S. District Court Judge Walter H. Rice.
In 2005, at the beginning of Montgomery Countys current effort to reduce recidivism, the county recidivism rate was 44.7%. By the end of 2011, the county recidivism rate had fallen dramatically to 32.2%. The Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry is pleased to announce, over the past two years, an overall recidivism rate of 9.3% for all 1,371 clients who are eligible for and participated in specific programming.
The annual cost to incarcerate an individual is about $ 25,000. The cost to provide an ex-offender with a cognitive based reentry program with proven results is less than $ 1,000.00 total.
To learn more about the benefits of hiring individuals returning from prison, employers can contact the Montgomery County Office of Ex-Offender Reentry at 937-225-6460.

A new website provided by Drake Software hits the sweet spot, giving taxpayers and employers a to-the-point, laymans overview of the Affordable Care Acts (ACA) looming tax implications. The site, located at http://www.acacalculators.com, makes the overwhelming law easy to digest in the form of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and free penalty and credit calculators.
The Affordable Care Act has been in existence for three years, but its real tax impact will be felt beginning on the first day of January, 2014, says John Sapp, Vice President of Strategic Development for Drake Software. American taxpayers and small businesses need to understand the impact of this unprecedented legislation. Our Tax Professional partners asked us to provide a resource they could use to help prepare their clients – both individual taxpayers and small businesses – for the tax implications of the ACA. ACACalculators.com will help taxpayers determine eligibility for the Premium Tax Credit, estimate the amount of credit they can claim in 2014, and calculate the penalty that will be assessed for being uninsured. Employers can determine if they are required to provide insurance and calculate the penalty for not providing adequate coverage to employees.
In addition to the free calculators and FAQs, the site links to resources at the White House, the US Department of Labor, the IRS, the Medicaid website, and the Health Care and You website.

Canadian, OK (PRWEB) June 24, 2012
The cost to American employers from substance abuse is simply astounding. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that businesses are losing $ 276 billion per year across the country. It goes down the drain in waste, theft, damage, injury claims and plain old bad habits like slacking or sleeping on the job.
Another survey from SAMHSA shows that more than three-quarters of those who are addicted are employed. That means roughly 16 million people addicted to street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs that are impaired on the job and costing their employers plenty. An impaired employee can mean risk not only to himself while on the job but to his (or her) co-workers as well.
Its no surprise then that Oklahoma employers recently received some help in the form of legislation that gave them more rights to drug test employees and reduce the cost of unemployment claims by former workers who had failed drug tests and then were let go. This legislation became effective in November 2011.
Substance Abuse Associated with the Majority of Felony Cases
And while an investigation by The Oklahoman showed that 60% of randomly chosen felonies filed in the Tulsa area related to drug or alcohol abuse, a local Assistant District Attorney disagreed. I would estimate 80 to 90 percent of our cases, including homicides and robberies, involve some link to illegal drugs or alcohol, said Doug Drummand of Oklahoma County.
While Terri White of the states Department of Mental Health pushes for the budget to help turn this situation around, she admits that the states drug rehab system is underfunded. Meaning many people who want to re-enter the workplace clean and sober are going to go on waiting lists.
Narconon Arrowhead Serves Oklahoma with Effective Drug Rehab and Brings Income into the State
Since 1992, Narconon of Oklahoma has been helping local citizens and those from all over the country recover their sobriety, The unique Narconon program that uses only nutritional supplements instead of medications in the treatment program, has one of the highest success rates in the field, meaning thousands of sober people returned to the workplace and communities since its founding.
In 2001, Narconon of Oklahoma opened a new, larger facility in the Arrowhead State Park in Canadian, Oklahoma. With this facility, it became one of the top twenty employers in the surrounding counties. As people needing treatment come not only from the local area but all over the country, local vendors benefit from the infusion of cash into the local economy. The Narconon Arrowhead drug rehab and education organization employs more than 180 employees and is expanding its services and employment base in 2012.
Some graduates stay on to help others travel the road to sobriety, like John Bitinas who heads up the Drug Education Department of Narconon Arrowhead. John stated, The Narconon program not only helped me get sober, it helped me understand why I had started using drugs in the first place which helped me find lasting sobriety. Now I can bring my understanding to others through my drug education lectures to schoolchildren. In the last several years, John has brought Narconons drug education curriculum to hundreds of thousands of young people.
