Due to additional Living with Covid restrictions announced January 6, 2021, the Government has decided to maintain, at current levels, the payments available under the Employment Wage Support Scheme (EWSS).
The EWSS provides a subsidy to qualifying employers to offset payroll costs and the payment of up to €350 per week will continue to be available. This enhanced payment level, which had been scheduled to fall from 1st February, will remain in place until the 31st March, 2021.
