Return and Earn Program
Gov. Phil Murphy announced the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOLWD) will be launching the Return and Earn Program. Employers may receive up to $10,000 in wage subsidies to hire and train new employees for up to six months. The wage subsidy will cover 50 percent of wages for up to six months for new employees. The subsidy is capped at $10,000 per new employee and at $40,000 per employer.
Workers hired through Return & Earn will receive a $500 return to work bonus in their first paycheck. Candidates must be New Jersey residents working full-time (minimum 32 hours per week). Seasonal, part-time, commission-based, or 1099 positions are not eligible.
Eligible businesses must have 100 or fewer current employees, and the positions to be filled must pay at least $15 per hour.
