JobCover placement program

The JobCover Placement program (JCPP) funds up to $27,400 in incentives for employers to employ a worker with a motor accident injury

COVID-19 information

For employers who have employed workers using the JobCover Placement Program (JCPP) but need to scale back / close their workplaces temporarily due to the impact of COVI-19, the duration of the JCPP for the worker will be increased to accommodate that period of change.

What do I need to do?

Employers should keep a record of the period of changed operations to support their claim for the incentive payments as their business re-opens along with the usual proof of payment of wages to the worker.

Re-negotiate the new end date of the JCPP agreement with the employer/worker/ insurer when known and submit the amended agreement form to the insurer.

What is it?

This program is designed to help you secure ongoing employment with a new employer. To encourage an employer to offer you a job, incentive payments for up to 12 months will be available for an eligible employer.

Incentive payments increase according to the length of time you remain employed:

  • up to $400 per week for first 12 weeks (maximum of $4,800)
  • up to $500 per week for next 14 weeks (maximum $7,000)
  • up to $600 per week for next 26 weeks (maximum $15,600).

COVID-19 information

For employers who have employed workers using this program but need to scale back or close their workplaces due to the impact of COVID-19, the duration of the program for the worker will be increased to accommodate that period of change.
