  • $585.80 a week for each full-time employee retained (20 hours a week or more)
  • $350 a week for each part-time employee retained (less than 20 hours a week).

You cannot receive a Wage Subsidy for an employee for the period if they're already covered by a Leave Support Scheme or Short-Term Absence Payment.
