The cap applicable for the wage compensation scheme is now raised to DKK 30,000 for all employees covered by the wage compensation scheme.
Increase in aid
The Government and the social partners have agreed on improvements to the tripartite agreement on temporary wage compensation to employees in danger of losing their jobs as a consequence of COVID-19.
The agreement means that the wage compensation level is increased both for salaried employees and non-salaried employees from DKK 23,000 and DKK 26,000, respectively, to DKK 30,000 per month per full-time employee covered by the wage compensation scheme.
Undertakings having already applied for wage compensation will automatically be covered by this higher level of aid.
