Applications now open for Back to Work SEQ employer support payments

Posted: 31st Jul

City of Logan employers: if you’re thinking about hiring new staff, you might be eligible for support payments through the Queensland Government’s Back to Work program. 

Employer support payments became available from 29 July 2017 and businesses are eligible to apply if employees have been working for a period of at least four weeks (since 1 July 2017). 

Through the Back to Work program, eligible employers who take on a long-term unemployed jobseeker are in line for support payments of $15,000, rising to $20,000 for those who hire a young jobseeker aged 15-24 years.

In line with the regional program, Back to Work Officers are on the ground to help jobseekers and employers.
