Pay subsidy

Do you want to improve your professional competence and promote your employment in the open labour market? A pay subsidy is a financial subsidy that compensates the employer for a part of the hiring costs of an unemployed jobseeker.

In what situation can a pay subsidy be granted?

A prerequisite for granting a pay subsidy is that you are an unemployed jobseeker and the pay-subsidised work improves your chances of employment. The pay subsidy is a discretionary subsidy. A pay subsidy may be granted for

  • a fixed-term employment relationship or an employment relationship that is valid until futher notice.
  • a full-time or part-time employment relationship (for example, if you have partial work ability).
  • apprenticeship training.

It is also possible to receive a pay subsidy for work for which your professional competence is not yet sufficient and in situations where you have a disability or illness that significantly affects your work performance.
