This program aims to give employers financial support when they offer at least eight hours per week of ongoing employment to someone who can’t return to their previous employer after a work-related injury or illness.
There are no limits to the number of times an employer can hire under the WISE program. WISE incentives can only be accessed once per person.
Eligible applicants include employers. Applicants can include group-mart configured references. However, labour hire companies, employment agencies or group training organisations that place a person into a workplace of another employer, are not eligible.
Traineeships and apprenticeships are not eligible for funding.
