COVID-19: Employer Guidance, 23 March 2020

Mar 23, 2020

Employers engaged with the COVID Employer Refund scheme will be allowed to top up the €203 payment provided by the State.  This is according to the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection.    

Details on how the top up payment and the revised scheme will operate are due to be published over the next couple of days.     

For now, what we have is guidance from Revenue on how the scheme, as initiated, is expected to operate.  This guidance is likely to be updated to include details of the revised scheme or superseded by a new guidance document.
