The NDIS employment system is responsible for employment services and programs. These include general employment services for all Australians and employment services specific to people with disabilities, such as disability employment services.
Employment services thus provide counseling and support to people with disabilities in preparing, finding and maintaining employment. The employment system is also helping the employers to hire and engage people with disabilities within the workplace. These include:
- support, great training and vast resources
- financing assistance to make appropriate changes, such as workplace equipment, through the Employment Fund
- Incentives to employ people with disabilities, such as wage compensation.
Employers are responsible for work-specific support related to your recruitment, your working conditions, and your work environment. These include:
- training and induction at the beginning of a new job
- Workplace changes and workplace equipment that you may work with, including those that may be funded by the Employment Assistance Fund
- transport in the framework of work activities
- Workplace support for compliance with disability discrimination laws, such as reasonable accommodation.
What is their primary responsibility?
- The support you need for your daily life, whether you work, are looking for a job or are not looking for a job
- Personal care and support at work, such as toilet assistance, food and drink at work
- Support for transport to and from work if you cannot use public transport without major difficulties due to your restrictions
- The support you need on a regular and ongoing basis to help you find and keep a job – we can fund this support if you can work, but you may not be able to find or keep a job if there is an employment service
- Support moving to work if you need more support just because of the disability compared to rest of the Australians – this includes training on the workplace relationships, vast communication skills, – going to work on exact time and traveling to as well as from work.
Who is eligible for NDIS Vic?
To be eligible for NDIS employment support funding, an illness or medical condition must cause permanent damage (physical, intellectual, mental, neurological, visual, auditory or psychosocial) that results in significant disability.
How much money can you get from NDIS?
For support connectivity, a service designed to help you understand and implement your plan by connecting to a broader support system and providers, NDIS pays up to $ 65.09 – $ 97.64 (as of September 1, 2021) depending on where you live.
How long is NDIS?
So we’ve taken steps to make plans for 24 months or more normal. If your NDIS employment support needs are strong, you can choose a plan for up to 36 months. To learn more about this topic visit our website.
