A Wage Subsidy Scheme is available through INTREO for an employee with a disability where there is a productivity shortfall. Where the employee is paid the National Minimum Wage of €8.65 per hour, or €6.92 for the first year of employment, the Subsidy is €5.30 per hour, for a job of at least 21 hours per week.
