The TE Office may grant a jobseeker a pay subsidy card to support their independent efforts to find work. If the jobseeker has a pay subsidy card it means that the employer is eligible for a pay subsidy towards the card holder's payroll costs if employer and employment relationship criteria for granting the subsidy are met.
Municipalities included in the local government trial on employment may also issue a pay subsidy card to their customers. The correct authority is written on the pay subsidy card.
A pay subsidy may be granted for those without a pay subsidy card if the possibility of subsidised employment is included in the employment plan of the unemployed jobseeker.
