BEDMINSTER, N.J., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- GettingHired, LLC, an organization focusing on careers and community for people with disabilities, announced today that it has secured $3 million of additional investment capital to fund continued growth of the largest disability employment portal in the USA as well as final development and launch of FastTrackRTW, an innovative new return to work initiative supporting the long term disability and workers' compensation insurance verticals. The investments were made by Zenith Insurance Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zenith National Insurance Corp, Kamine Development Corp and Fisher Capital Corp. LLC.

"We are excited about this innovative approach to managing the return to work challenge, and look forward to using the FastTrackRTW product as a unique resource in helping our injured workers find productive work," said Stanley Zax, Chairman and President of Zenith.

FastTrackRTW incorporates many of the features of the existing GettingHired.com employment and social networking portal and adds a robust injured worker and caseworker platform, as well as a specialized enhancement to GettingHired.com's RightMatch(TM) technology.

Jim Fisher, Managing Member of Fisher Capital, added that he believes that the "FastTrackRTW program will be able to leverage the success of the GettingHired.com platform, which has already seen explosive growth in its first year of connecting people with disabilities to employers committed to hiring people with disabilities, and will be a significant aid in helping more people return to a productive work life after experiencing an injury or illness within the LTD and Workers' Compensation arenas."

GettingHired, LLC CEO Tom Capato said he was "excited by the opportunity and felt privileged to be in a position to support continued progress toward the goal of creating employment opportunities for people with disabilities."
