Work Opportunity Tax Credit and Federal Bonding

As of 2016, there were 143 regulations listed in the West Virginia Code that affect employment, occupational and business licensing, for persons convicted of a felony. Two federal programs, the Work Opportunity Tax Credit and the Federal Bonding Program, incentivize hiring persons with criminal convictions at no cost to either the employer or the employee.  For more information, please see the following:
