Job info to tell your GAIN Worker

Congratulations on your employment!

Your DPSS worker can help you sustain your employment AND give you credit for the hours you are working – but only if you let them know. This is the basic information you should provide IN Writing. There is an actual official form, but until you can turn that in – give the following info to your worker.  

  • Date you started working
  • Your job title
  • Company name and address
  • Number of hours you will be working per week – is it a fixed schedule or will the hours vary?
  • Hourly wage
  • Whether employment is temporary or permanent. If temporary, how long will the job last
  • The name, title, address, and telephone number of a contact person/HR/Manager at the company
  • Whether your employer provides health benefits
  • Whether your employer provides training and/ or promotional opportunities
  • Provide a copy of the dress code AND tell your worker if you need to buy clothes/supplies for work
  • Tell your Worker if you will be riding the bus, driving, walking, etc to work and if you need transportation funds.
  • If you are using Subsidized Child Care – be sure to report the employment to them as well.
