New Employee Subsidy Opportunity - Employer

Partnerships:

Ministry of Immigration and Career Training

Northeast Newcomer Services

 

Overview:

Cumberland College and Settlement Services are collaborating to deliver a work placement project designed to enhance our local labor market and reduce our regional unemployment rate. Cumberland College and it’s partnering agencies, would like to work with local businesses by offering employers wage subsidies for every participant that receives full-time permanent employment. In addition to the employee wage subsidy, this project will provide employers with an opportunity to be matched with trainable employees, therefore reducing hiring risks and uncertainties that could potentially turn problematic when hiring new employees.

 

Wage subsidy:

The work placement project will be held over a 4-month period, with the end goal of having the employer retain the participant as a full-time year-round employee.

Wage subsidies for each work placement participant will be set at the Saskatchewan minimum wage amount of $11.81/hour (not including MERCS and benefits), 40 hours/week, for 16 weeks (4 months), decreasing contribution by 20% per hour for each of the first 3 months.

 

1st month – 100% @ $11.81/ hour x 160 hours.

2nd month – 80% @ $9.45/hour x 160 hours.

3rd and 4th month – 60% @ $7.09/hour x 320 hours.

Total wage subsidies per participant = $5,670.40

 

Please note that any wages above the Saskatchewan minimum wage amount of $11.81, Cumberland College will only be able to offer $11.81/hour per placement, and the employer will be responsible to cover the remaining wage amount.

 

Expectations:

The coordinator from Cumberland College will connect with local businesses, to identify current employment positions. The coordinator will then meet with participants on an individual basis to begin the application process.

Participants will then be matched with employers to begin the employment process. Regular communication with both employers and employees will be maintained throughout the placement, in order to promptly address any issues or concerns that the employer or employee may encounter.

The project coordinator will monitor the employee’s performance closely throughout the placement and will keep accurate records to coordinate the collection of documents necessary for the wage subsidy for the employer.

Employers will be responsible for submitting paystubs and proof of payment to the coordinator on a bi-weekly basis.
