Employment Barriers was designed for evaluating clients' "barriers to employment."
Screening for employment barriers allows problems to be identified and treated according to their severity.
Employment Barriers (EB) is a 116-item, self-report test that is written at a
low 6th grade reading level. It can be completed in 25 minutes. Scored and
typed EB reports are available on-site, within 2½ minutes of data entry. EB
problem screening speeds up intervention, treatment, and help.
Staff, working with hard-to-employ, or employment challenged individuals, benefit
from Employment Barriers (EB) screening. Programs include, but are not limited
to: Work Readiness, Vocational Rehabilitation, Health and Community Services,
Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), Human Resource Departments, Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA).
