New local support care staffs to the Community Care sector will be eligible for the $3,000 retention bonus:
1. New local support care staff working at least 0.5 FTE* per month will receive $1,000 upon completion of the first 6 months of service with their community care employer, and the remaining $2,000 upon the completion of the first year of service with their community care employer (service period exclude training period).

*1 FTE is computed on the basis of a 42-hour work week.
