Short-time working allowance

The page was last modified:

Short-time work means that an employee temporarily reduces the work hours and pay instead of being laid off. This means that employers can reduce employees' working hours and receive financial support from the Government to compensate for a significant part of the costs for retaining the employee.

It is no longer possible to apply for support for short-time working allowance. The last day to apply for the period July – September was 30 November 2021.
