Proposed amendment to the Employment Act – Short-time working from the employer’s perspective

Under the legislation, proposed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, the government would provide support to employers facing pandemic-related financial difficulties, as a result of which employees have to work reduced hours. The company would pay salaries only for the actual hours that employees worked. The government would cover salaries to a certain extent for the rest of the time (ie the days when employees are at home).
