Performance Improvement 2005. Private Employers and TANF Recipients

01/01/2005

Despite the TANF program’s emphasis on employment, the policies, practices and attitudes of the employers of TANF recipients have received limited attention. This report summarizes a study, conducted by Abt Associates, Inc. and the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, which synthesizes existing research regarding employers, workforce intermediaries, and TANF recipients. The study found that there is a wide range of employer and intermediary practices, which depend in large part on local labor market conditions. The report then considers a range of options for further study - including possibilities for a national survey of employers and workforce intermediaries - in order to improve understanding in this area.
