Employment Support Scheme – making the application

Linkedin

As stated in our client alert of 17 April 2020, the Employment Support Scheme (“ESS”) has been introduced to try and save jobs in Hong Kong as well as relieve the financial burden on employers on a short term basis. 

Employers can now apply for a wage subsidy under the ESS and have until 14 June 2020 to make an online application by visiting the website

Wage subsidies will be distributed in two tranches. The first tranche will cover the period from June to August 2020 whereas the second tranche will cover the period from September to November 2020. The second tranche of subsidies will be disbursed in September 2020 and the application deadline for the next tranche is yet to be announced.
