Wage subsidies

You can apply for a salary allowance when you hire a person with a reduced ability to work because of a disability, such as a limited ability to work or mental illness. The Swedish Public Employment Service then accounts for part of the salary for a period. The salary contribution is to compensate for the adjustments that may need to be made at the workplace.
