Wage subsidies provide a financial incentive to eligible employers when considering the employment of job seekers with disability or with other barriers to employment. Wage subsidies also aim to increase the competitiveness of job seekers with disability or with other barriers when seeking employment in open labour market conditions.
JobAccess provides information and direction on providing wage subsidies to employers who are considering employing a person with disability. It is a starting point for a range of matters you may wish to consider.
It is also useful to talk to job seekers about the incentives that are available to their potential employer. If they know about these incentives they can discuss them with the employer during the application or interview process. JobAccess contains fact sheets for employers about the help and financial incentives that may be available to them.
