Government launches employment refund scheme for Gozo

The Ministry for Gozo launched the one time employment refund scheme through which employers can get a refund of their employee’s wages. The scheme applies for those companies which have generated employment in Gozo throughout these past two years.

The scheme was initially launched in July 2018. During a press conference, Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri said that the scheme comes into effect on a yearly basis.

With this scheme employers will get a 30% refund of pay up to €6,000 for each new job created in the Gozitan private sector, on a three-year contract.

Minister Camilleri said that the aim is to create more jobs and more work quality on a full-time basis in Gozo within the private sector. He continued to explain that companies which offer a work contract of a minimum of three years employment can benefit for the scheme if they apply.

Applications will remain open till the 31st of December 2020.
