“Now that we are tightening the infection control measures, there is also a need for the government to stand up financially for the companies and employees who are affected,” Minister of Finance Trygve Slagsvold Vedum (SP) noted.
“With the proposals we present today, we want to give people and companies financial security, and make it easier to keep the wheels in motion in line with infection control measures.”
The national compensation scheme for business and industry will be relaunched for the months of November and December, with some adjustments. The maximum payout will be lower than before so that the scheme primarily affects smaller players.
