According to the Qualifizierungschancengesetz these are the options available for your company:

  • 1 - 9 employees -> 75% of all employer costs related to employee
  • 10 - 249 employees -> 50% of all employer costs related to employee
  • More than 250 employees -> 25% of all employer costs related to employee

Nevertheless, the final offer for your company can cover up to 100% of the costs, depending on your sector and the situation of your employee.

With the recently confirmed Arbeit-von-Morgen-Gesetz these possible subsidisations have been increased by another 10% if you’re company is sending 20% of their total employees. Find out more here.
