As an exception, for a laid off person, the maximum payment period is not used up

The temporary change to law means that the earnings-related allowance paid to you if you are laid off will not use up the maximum payment period of your earnings-related daily allowance.

ENTRY INTO FORCE

  • Issued to Parliament on 2 April 2020
  • Approved in Parliament on 9 April 2020
  • Presented to the President on 9 April 2020
  • Valid from 15 April 2020 to 6 July 2020
  • Applicable from 16 March 2020 to 30 June 2020

Normally, we can pay earnings-related allowance for 300, 400 or 500 days. The temporary change in law that will take effect on 15 April 2020 means that an earnings-related daily allowance paid to someone if they are laid off will not use up the maximum payment period.

The change applies to earnings-related daily allowance paid when someone is laid off on or after 16 March 2020 for the period from 16 March 2020 to 30 June 2020.
