Employment Programme for the Elderly and Middle-aged

With effect from 1 September 2018, Employment Programme for the Middle-aged has been enhanced and renamed as the Employment Programme for the Elderly and Middle-aged (EPEM)

The Employment Programme for the Elderly and Middle-aged (EPEM) aims at encouraging employers to engage unemployed job seekers aged 40 or above and provide the job seekers with on-the-job training (OJT), through the provision of training allowance to employers. This will enable job seekers to adapt to new working environment and acquire essential job-specific skills with a view to securing stable employment. Upon completion of OJT by eligible employees under EPEM, employers engaging unemployed elderly job seekers aged 60 or above may apply for an on-the-job training allowance of up to $4,000 per month per employee for 6 to 12 months; while employers engaging unemployed job seekers aged 40 to below 60 may apply for an on-the-job training allowance of up to $3,000 per month per employee for 3 to 6 months.
