There have been massive changes to the Back to Work program which includes the $20K Youth Boost I have promoted loudly and widely. Form 1st July 2018, the program will change significantly. If you are using this program, or considering using it, it pays to read the fine print and check out the changes.
The first thing you should do is read the Queensland Government Back to Work website to familiarise yourself with the changes and see if they impact you.
The second thing you should do is contact your local Back to Work Officer at Queensland Government to discuss how the changes impact you.
The third thing you should do is not panic. The most important thing is employing the RIGHT person for your business. They may still be eligible to complete a traineeship, attract federal government subsidies and other funding. To find out more about what else is available, I recommend you check out:
Best of luck - I hope that if you are considering hiring a new staff member, you find someone fabulous!
