Support for you and your business in tough times
The government is currently offering three support schemes:
Scheme 1 - Pandemic Unemployment Payment
Employee is temporarily laid off and gets €350 per week from the Department of Social Protection – employee comes off the payroll.
Scheme 2 - Temporary Covid-19 Wage Subsidy Scheme
Employer keeps the employee on the payroll and claims a wage subsidy.
Scheme 3 - Employee Wage Subsidy Scheme - EWSS
In place from the 1st September 2020 and replaces the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme
For more information on both these schemes, please see the articles below.
We ran a webinar with 2 other local firms to explain the temporary wage subsidy and answer business owners questions. You can find the recording below.
How should you treat an employee that you re-hire who had been temporarily laid off and was claiming the Pandemic Unemployment Payment?
