Support Schemes for Employers

JobsPlus   is an employer incentive which encourages and rewards employers who offer employment opportunities to the long term unemployed. This incentive replaced the revenue job assist and employer job (PRSI) exemption scheme from 1st July 2013. Regular cash payments will be made to qualifying employers to offset wage costs where they recruit jobseekers from the live register.

This incentive is designed to encourage employers and businesses to focus their recruitment efforts on those who have been out of work for long periods. The level of payment is increased for the recruitment of those out of work for more than two years.

This incentive is open to all employers in the private (including commercial semi-state), community, not-for-profit and voluntary sectors.
