American Unemployed Worker Investment Act of 2015

This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to: (1) extend the work opportunity tax credit through 2017; (2) allow a small business employer (i.e., an employer who employs more than 10 but fewer than 25 full-time employees throughout the taxable year) an increased work opportunity tax credit for hiring a qualified unemployment compensation recipient; and (3) allow tax-exempt organizations a work opportunity tax credit for hiring qualified unemployment compensation recipients.

The bill defines "qualified unemployment compensation recipient" as any individual who is certified as: (1) not being a student for at least six months during the one-year period ending on the hiring date, (2) being in receipt of unemployment compensation on the hiring date, and (3) having a hiring date during the two-year period which begins on the enactment of this Act.

The bill denies such credit unless: (1) the qualified unemployment compensation recipient is employed for not less than 35 hours per week for not less than 1 year, and (2) the number of full-time employees of the employer receiving such credit is increased by 1 for at least 1 year.
