Government ‘Antivirus’ programme will help companies to safeguard jobs23. 3. 2020
The Czech government has approved a proposal by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs which will help to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on both employees and employers. The Antivirus programme is a key means of protecting the labour market; the Czech Republic’s national Labour Office will pay compensation to companies. This measure will make it easier for employers to deal with the current situation so that they do not have to resort to redundancies.
For more information on the programme, see the website of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (in Czech only).
