Essential Workers Leave Support

06 Apr 2020

The Government has announced that a new COVID-19 leave payment scheme will be available to essential businesses for essential workers from 6 April 2020.

The new payment will support essential workers who have to stay at home to comply with public health guidance (who can't work from home) and whose employers are unable to keep paying them.

Essential employers who can financially support their workers with leave requirements or any special paid leave entitlements - without the use of the subsidy - should continue to do so.
