(ČIA) The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs will launch the Antivirus programme for the protection of employment at noon on April 6, 2020. This statement was made by Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Jana Maláčová (ČSSD) on Czech Television’s debate, Otázky Václava Moravce. The programme concerns up to 3.1m employees and 280,000 companies. The state will provide two types of contributions: It will cover 80% of wages to people from closed establishments during the ordered closure up to the amount of CZK 39,000. In case of raw material outages or lower demand, the state will provide 60% of wages up to the amount of CZK 29,000. Support will be calculated from the super-gross wage. Employers will have to pay wages and levies first, and the Labour Office will then reimburse the given part.
