The government approved a proposal to change the conditions and extend the implementation period of a program (referred to as the “First Aid project”) aimed to support and maintain jobs during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic state of emergency.

The financial aid to employers and self-employed is extended through 31 December 2021.

Effective 1 September 2021, employers are entitled for the reimbursement of wage costs for employee in an amount equal to 80% of gross wage in instances when the pandemic imposed obstacles on the employer’s side.

However, it will not be possible to claim a contribution under measure 3B (a contribution paid in an amount depending on the decrease in turnover). The Ministry of Labor has announced a possible reassessment of the approach and reintroduction of measures to allow claims of the contribution under measure 3B.
