Wage Subsidy Workflow

There are two ways to manage the workflow around wage subsidies in Job Ready

The first being that the entire amount of the wage subsidy is approved by the permitted approver. The user will then set reminders in Job Ready to prompt when instalments are to be made over the duration of the agreement. Please follow Option 1 should you choose to manage wage subsidies in this fashion.

The second being that individual expenses are created for each instalment of the wage subsidy over the duration of the agreement. Meaning that the permitted approver has only approved a potion of the wage subsidy at one time. Please follow Option 2 should you choose to manage wage subsidies in this fashion.

Regardless of the workflow you choose the finished result will be visible to you on the Job Seeker Profile under Expenses.

Note: For Option 2 you will need to have New Purchase Orders active in your system. You will find this under the Finance index tab. Should this not be available to you please contact us to discuss further.
