Reemployment of Older Workers
This study examined challenges facing older unemployed workers (ages 50 and older), including the competing demands to have an income while completing needed job-related training. The programs and strategies available to assist with reentry into the workforce were also assessed. Besides identifying how older workers with transferrable skills could align with current job shortage areas, the availability of relevant educational and training programs at community colleges and other resources were explored.
Additionally, the study also evaluated the state's technical high schools as a resource for reemployment of older workers.
The final published report approved by the committee on December 18, 2013 along with agency comments is available under Products. A public hearing on the study was held on October 3, 2013 (Testimony by Hearing Date).
