The Kansas Industrial Retraining program is a job retention tool that helps employees of restructuring companies who are likely to be displaced because of obsolete or inadequate job skills and knowledge.
Eligible industries include basic enterprises that are restructuring operations through incorporation of new technology, diversification of production or the development and implementation of new production activities. At least one current employee must be trained to qualify for assistance.
Examples of eligible expenditures include instructor salaries, curriculum development, travel, materials, supplies, textbooks, minor training equipment and some facility costs. To be eligible, a company must retrain at least one existing position at an average wage of at least $11 per hour in Douglas, Johnson, Leavenworth, Sedgwick, Shawnee and Wyandotte counties, or at least $9.50 per hour in the rest of the state. These wages are effective July 1, 2007.
