The Employee Retention Grant Scheme aims to help private sector employers to keep employees who acquire an illness, condition or impairment (occupational or otherwise) that affects their ability to carry out their job.
The grant helps employers to explore an employee’s continuing ability to operate as a member of the workforce.
This scheme provides funding to:
identify accommodation or training or both, to enable the employee to stay in their current position
retrain the employee so that they can take up another position within the company
The Employee Retention Grant Scheme is open to all companies in the private sector. Funding is available to help keep any existing employee, at any level and occupation within the company.
Completed claim forms should be forwarded to your local department office, Intreo office
or to the case officer who dealt with your application.
