Additional Forms of Aid for Employing People Under 30

 If you admit an intern or employ an unemployed person under 30, who was granted an internship or employment voucher, you may receive additional forms of aid from the labour office.

Internship vouchers

An employer who accepts an unemployed person as an intern, and then employs her or him for another 6 months, receives a bonus of 1 513,50 zł.

The bonus is granted under the terms of the admissibility of de minimis aid.

Internship voucher is granted upon request of the unemployed.

An internship organized on the basis of the voucher is subject to the same rules as in the case of a regular internship.

Employment vouchers

The employment voucher is granted on the basis of a contract concluded between the labour office  and the employer. It includes the following terms:

  • the employer is obliged to employ an unemployed person for the period of 18 months;
  • the labour office return part of the costs borne by the employer on remuneration and social insurance contributions for the period of 12 months in the amount of 100% of the unemployment benefit;
  • the employer is obliged to employ the designated unemployed person for another 6 months after the subsidized period.

If the employer fails to maintain the employment for  18 months, he returns:

  • all the previously received reimbursement together with the statutory interest calculated from the day of receiving the first part of reimbursement, provided that fails to maintain the employment within 12 months of concluding the contract with the designated person, or
  • the amount calculated proportionally to the period that left in order to fulfill the requirement of employment maintenance together with the statutory interest calculated from the day of receiving the first part of reimbursement, provided that the employer failed to maintain the employment within the first 6 months of reimbursement.

If the contract of employment is terminated without notice due to the employee’s fault (the so-called disciplinary dismissal) or if the contract expires during the subsidized period or during the required 6-month period after the subsidized period, the employer does not have to return any costs.

Employment voucher is granted upon request of the unemployed person. The term of validity is set by the labour office and determines the time for finding the employer.

The refund of the costs borne on remuneration and social insurance contributions for the employed designated person is granted under the terms of the admissibility of de minimis aid.
