The application for the Swedish government short-time work subsidy (Sw. stöd vid korttidsarbete) opened on Tuesday, 7 April. Please Join our Employment team for a half-hour Webinar for our insights and thoughts on the application process.
Please note that, after the webinar, the Swedish government announced a temporary expansion of the short-time work model: during May, June and July 2020, it will be possible to put employees on 80 % leave with 88 % of regular pay and the government subsidy covering the major part of the salary costs.
We will cover this expansion as well as other practical aspects of the short-time work system in another forthcoming webinar. An invitation will be sent to you separately.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
