There are many Government schemes to help people get back to work which are targeted at employers. Schemes such as JobBridge allow an employer to take on an employee for 6 months at no cost, with no obligation. There is a double tax deduction available also for taking on a new employee who has previously been unemployed in a permanent capacity. If you would like to take someone on but aren’t sure if you can afford it, why not try these schemes?
For charities, the Tús scheme means that the charity can have a free worker for a 12 month period.
