How much employers get
Employers receive a grant of £75 per week for the length of the job trial. The employee with the disability is employed under the same terms and conditions as any other employee of that company and receives a wage at the 'going rate for the job'.
Payment will be made in a lump sum at the end of the 13 week job trial period.
Who is eligible
The grant is available to employers who employ people with disabilities either full-time or part-time. The job should be permanent and expected to last at least 32 weeks.
During the trial
A Work Coach will keep in contact with the employee and the employer to monitor the job trial, and identify and resolve any issues there are.
