How does it work

Program Design

The Labrador West Employment Corporation builds a relationship with the supported employee which in turn helps the Employment Coordinator job match employment to employee.

The employer is responsible for paying the wages of the supported employee.

There are 2 levels of support available:

  1. Supported Employment Purchase Support- Supported Employee utilizes the natural supports of the workplace to complete duties of employment.
  2. Supported Employment Job Trainer Support- If required, a co-worker can be provided to work alongside of the supported employee at no cost to the employer.  The role of the co-worker is to train and assist the supported employee in the place of employment to the point where the supported employee can perform the duties and responsibilities of the job successfully and independently.
