Incentives for employers

There are many ways businesses can access subsidies and incentives to support employing new people.

Disability Employment Service wage subsidies

Disability Employment wage subsidies are available for employers hiring people with disabilities through a Disability Employment Service (DES) provider. This includes financial assistance of up to $1500 to employers who employ eligible people with disability. They must be registered with a Disability Employment Services (DES) provider.

Local jobs fund

You can work with Local Employment Facilitators, Local Jobs and Skills Taskforces to develop Local Recovery Fund proposals.
