Restart Wage Subsidy may apply when hiring mature aged workers

Employers that provide jobs to people 50 years of age or older, could be eligible for financial assistance that can be used on anything they need to expand their business – from reskilling staff to investing in new equipment.

The Restart Wage Subsidy provides an incentive of up to $10,000 (GST inclusive) to employers if they hire and retain a full-time mature age job seeker aged 50 years or older who has been unemployed and receiving income support for 6 months or more.

The Restart Wage Subsidy can be claimed on a pro rata basis if hiring mature age workers part-time, for at least 15 hours a week.
