The Government will extend the temporary unemployment measures for a further month when they expire on 31 May.
These measures will now be extended to 30 June 2020 and include:
- Temporary unemployment due to force majeure. This would apply if your activity has come to a complete halt following the government closure announcements (e.g. you run a conference venue, a training company, a restaurant or a travel agency organising trips in northern Italy). Your staff will be placed on temporary unemployment full time.
- You have experienced a catastrophic reduction in business for reasons which are totally beyond your control. You can reduce your work force partially e.g. by staff working fewer hours or by some staff being made temporarily unemployed but not necessarily all.
The measures are applied through your payroll agency. Employees receive 70% of their salary capped at €2754.76.
