Application detail:

Applications may be made at any time.

What do you get?

Free productivity assessment.

Who is this for?

Employers of people with a disability.


The Supported Wage System provides a framework to determine the wages paid to employees with a disability who may not be able to perform jobs at the same capacity as any other employee.

Employers can access a free productivity assessment from a qualified assessor which will recommend the wages paid to the employee with a disability based on their productivity.

The assessment will:

  • be done with the employer, employee with disability and the Employment Services provider and nominee (if the employee has one) at a time that suits everyone, and
  • happen on an employee's regular work day when they are doing their usual job

The assessor is also able to advise on any modifications necessary for the employee to be able to do their job.
