Receive Wage Subsidies
The Australian Government provide a range of programs and supports that not only help people get back into sustainable work but assist businesses to generate these employment opportunities for their local community.
Financial incentives such as wage subsidies are available to businesses who hire and retain eligible job seekers, in full-time, part-time or casual positions, provided the employer meets the terms and conditions within a Wage Subsidy Agreement agreed with Sureway.
You may be eligible for a wage subsidy if you meet the following criteria:
- You have an Australian Business Number
- You have not previously received a wage subsidy for the same person
- You are not an Australian, state or territory government agency
- The person you hire meets the eligibility requirements for the wage subsidy
- The position you offer is sustainable and ongoing employment
- The work complies with employment standards for the position (for example, is suitable work and pays as a minimum the national award wage)
- The person you hire is a new employee that you have never previously employed
- Comply with relevant laws, including but not limited to work health and safety legislation
- Provide a safe system of work for the new employee at all times
Some jobs are not eligible for a wage subsidy, including:
- Work that displaces an existing employee
- Positions that aren’t paid at a fixed rate such as commission-based, subcontracting or self-employment positions
- Work for an immediate family member
- Those receiving support through another Australian Government wage subsidy
Note – the requirements for wage subsidies are determined by the Australian Government and are subject to change. You can learn more here.
Employment must comply with National Employment Standards. Jobs can be full time, part time or casual. Apprenticeships and traineeships are also eligible to attract a Wage Subsidy.
Paid work trials can form part of a wage subsidy agreement, excluding those funded by the Employment Fund. Employers who decide to hire an individual who has completed a National Work Experience Programme, may also be eligible for a wage subsidy.
Sureway has wide experience in helping employers access the most relevant and beneficial financial incentives from the Government. Feel free to visit us at an office near you to discuss any questions you may have and receive up-to-date information of current programs and opportunities.
