What is the difference between a "participating agency” and  a "partner agency”?
We will provide the WOTC cards and general advice and assistance on the WOTC to any agency that works with helping felons or other disadvantaged workers get hired.  That is a "participating agency.”  
Members and staff of a “partner agency” are entitled to matched job leads from the database.  To be a “partner agency” means that the agency assists in populating and keeping the database current and dynamic by providing employer data at the beginning of the relationship and by updating it with reporting about jobs obtained on an ongoing basis.
What is meant by “matched job leads”?
Our database and/or personnel matches the job seekers’ training, interests, experience and overall credentials and the job candidate's locale (and any relevant limitations) with suitable employers drawn from the database.  
How long are matched job leads supplied to a member of a partner agency?
Until the job candidate gets hired or quits working the leads provided.  Part of your responsibility as “a partner agency” is to notify us of employment obtained within 10 days of the work start date.
