JobsPlus Incentive is a new employer Incentive which encourages and rewards employers who offer employment opportunities to the long term unemployed and it replaced the Revenue Job Assist and Employer Job (PRSI) Exemption Scheme.

To qualify an employer must offer full time employment of at least 30 hours per week, for at least four days per week. The new employee must be on payroll and subject to PAYE and PRSI.
