What is the Return & Earn Program? How can I find information about return-to-work paycheck bonuses?

Last Updated: 02/24/2022

The Return and Earn program benefits employers and their new employees.

Qualified employers receive a wage subsidy for six months, while unemployed workers reentering the workforce and receiving job training are eligible for a $500 incentive in their first paycheck.

Employers can complete this form to express interest and receive application information as it becomes available.

Job seekers interested in receiving one-on-one virtual career services should complete the service request form here.
