Type of Program:
The JobsNL Wage Subsidy program supports employers to create sustainable long-term employment or seasonal / short term employment. The subsidy is intended to offset salary costs to create new positions.
There are two subsidy options:
- 1JobsNL- 42 that provides a wage subsidy for 28 weeks of a minimum 42-week period of employment
- 2JobsNL- 28 that provides a wage subsidy for a period of 10 – 28 weeks, allowing funding for seasonal / short term employment.
Comments on Funding:
For the JobsNL- 42 option the subsidy is as follows:
A completion bonus of $2,000 for the employer and $1,000 for the employee may be paid, only if the employee remains employed for ten (10) weeks after the end of the subsidy, meaning 52 weeks of continuous employment.
For the JobsNL- 28 option the subsidy is 60% subsidy, to a maximum of $12 towards the hourly wage rate.
A completion bonus of $2,000 for the employer and $1,000 for the employee may be paid to employers approved for a subsidy of 28 weeks, only if the employee remains employed for ten (10) weeks after the end of the subsidy period, meaning 38 weeks of continuous employment.
