Service Description

People with disabilities or severely disabled people should be given the opportunity to prove their strengths and abilities on the job market. As a company, you can facilitate the entry or re-entry into working life with a trial employment. During this time, all participants can try out working together for up to 3 months in a fixed-term employment relationship.

The Federal Employment Agency can reimburse you for the costs you incur as part of this trial employment. This usually includes

  • Wage/salary costs, including the employer's social security contributions and
  • other benefits based on statutory or collectively agreed regulations
  • Contributions and contributions to the employers' liability insurance association

The Federal Employment Agency is responsible for the district in which the person you wish to employ on a trial basis has their main place of residence or habitual abode at the start of the trial employment relationship.
