The employers’ organization NHO is not satisfied with the government’s compensation scheme.
“The national compensation scheme announced by the government only covers November and December. However, the infection measures last well into January, which means that the worst period for affected companies is not covered. It is not good enough,” NHO chief Ole Erik Almlid said.
On Tuesday, the government has proposed extending the general compensation scheme for business and industry, with some adjustments.
The requirement for a fall in turnover has been relaxed from 40 to 30% in the November-December period. Almlid believes that the schemes for the business community should have been extended until 2022.
“We see that the scheme is extended to after the New Year for other groups. Only the business community gets a stop at the New Year,” he added.
The details of the compensation scheme, also after the New Year, will be set in place together with a new wage support scheme so that the overall structure and level of compensation are comprehensive and adapted to the situation, the government stated on Tuesday.
