JobMaker employee notice
On this page:
If you have registered for JobMaker Hiring Credit scheme and want to make a claim, your eligible employees must first complete a JobMaker employee notice.
You can either:
The notice must:
- be completed before you make a claim for JobMaker Hiring Credit payments
- be received for each eligible employee you intend to make a claim for.
An employee notice can be submitted to you through:
- your internal business process – for example, a business HR portal
- the employee's own form of communication channel – for example, email.
We don't need your employee's signature however you may choose to request it.
If you have requested your employee’s signature, but it is not practical for them to provide it in the notice, it would be reasonable to accept the action of the employee sending you an email as a form of signature.
You should ensure employees are aware there are penalties for making a false and misleading statement in a declaration.
