At the end of April the Government announced that the Wage Supplement will be extended to May and June 2020. Those who will be applying for COVID-19 Wage Supplement in May will be paid for May, and subsequently for June.
Those businesses which already applied for the COVID Wage Supplement in March and April do not need to apply again. They will continue to benefit from the COVID Wage Supplement until further notice.
The Covid Wage Supplement provides employees with a basic wage cover to address the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to simplify administrative processes funds will be forwarded to employers who will be obliged to guarantee that the Covid Wage Supplement is forwarded to the employee.
