Disability Employment Services Grant Agreement Effective 1 July 2018
The Work Assist program is suitable for people who are having difficulty obtaining employment or meeting the essential requirements of their job due to the effects of a disability, injury or persistent health situation. Persons with disabilities may be entitled to one of two different DE programs depending on their disability: people with disabilities, injuries or health conditions can receive assistance in preparing, finding and keeping a job. Assistance can include career guidance, job preparation, resumption of development and training. You can also benefit from job search assistance and ongoing help in the workplace (if you need it), including funding for necessary work changes and wage subsidies to employers. Jobseekers with disabilities may have a number of different needs to prepare for work. Reclink Australia works with each DES participant to meet their individual needs. Reclink Australia meets regularly with DES participants to ensure they receive the support they need. The first contact will be face to face to discuss the participant`s needs and plan the supplier`s support. Other contacts can be face-to-face, videoconferencing or over the phone.
The amount of resources participants attract to their provider depends on the service they are in (Disability Management Service or Employment Support Service) and the barriers they face to the job. A participant`s funding is likely to be changed during their stay in the program. The Employment Support Service (DES-ESS) helps permanent job seekers with disabilities find employment and needs regular and ongoing assistance in the workplace to keep a job. The DES is provided by a mix of large, medium and small non-profit organizations that help people with disabilities. LA providers can also work with employers to help them develop practices that help the employee in the workplace. Disability Work Services Grant Agreement – Effective July 1, 2018, claimants receive payments to help participants find and maintain employment. Payments are structured so that suppliers earn more money if they put more people into sustainable employment. There are three primary payments in DES: Please note, however, that Reclink Australia will not register directly and will directly accommodate full-time students to place them exclusively in post-school jobs.
In cases where a participant and their parent or legal guardian agree, Reclink Australia may consider it appropriate to employ an ESL participant for eight hours per week while he or she is still a full-time student. This could provide appropriate work experience or determine a participant`s suitability for a particular type of work. Under these conditions, a job of eight hours per week would be considered appropriate, as it is part of the overall transition of the job seeker in a post-school environment. Given the extent of the disability of a job seeker who is able to be directly registered as an ESL and admitted to the DES, the time required to remove barriers to opening a job may vary and sometimes placement in open employment cannot take place immediately after the program begins.
