In order to be reimbursed, the employer must submit invoices for approved training expenditures along with: 1) proof of payment; 2) proof of completion from the training provider; and 3) either proof of a pay increase or proof that wages were paid for the training hours attended, all within 30 days of the completion of the training.

Note: "Successful training" is defined as those training programs where
50% or more of the individuals who exit the program (completers and non-completers)
within a given academic year, find unsubsidized employment in the first
quarter subsequent to exiting.
New training programs (those that did not exist in the previous year for a unique training provider), would be exempt from meeting eligibility criteria until such time as the training cycle has been completed and performance data compiled based on the timeline established for reporting to LWC.

There is a good possibility that an employer can qualify based on current records combined with their predecessor's. The Chief of Tax for LWC will review UI tax records to determine whether an employer meets the eligibility requirements.
The employer must submit an SBET Application to LWC for approval. Employers apply online at: https://iwtp.laworks.net/Launch/LaunchPage.asp?SBET=Y . For those employers who do not have computer access, computers are available at the LWC Local Career Solutions Offices or at local libraries.
