Job Commitment Bonus for Young Australians Evaluation

This report is an evaluation of the Job Commitment Bonus for Young Australians.

The Job Commitment Bonus for Young Australians (JCB) operated for two and a half years between 1 July 2014 and 31 December 2016. The JCB offered an incentive payment to people aged 18 to under 31 years who had been on Newstart Allowance or Youth Allowance (Other) for 12 months or more, to encourage them to find work and remain sustainably off welfare. This evaluation examines how effective the JCB was in achieving its objective of encouraging young long-term unemployed Australians to find work and remain off welfare.

A summary of the key findings of the evaluation report is also available, as well as a Departmental Response to the evaluation.
