BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Companies and employees can get easier access to short-time work due to the ongoing Corona crisis. With an ordinance by the executive minister of labor, Hubertus Heil, which passed the cabinet on Wednesday, the maximum payment period of 24 months will be extended for a further three months until March 31, 2022.

“For many companies it is not foreseeable when they will be able to reach the pre-crisis level again,” said the SPD politician. It cannot be ruled out that “further tightened measures” will have to be taken in many federal states. Heil said it could have “significant effects on local retail, the hospitality industry and the entire service sector.” In addition, delivery problems caused by the pandemic put a strain on production.

The ordinance will also extend the simplified access to short-time work allowance introduced during the crisis until March 31. The previous full reimbursement of social security contributions for employers will be reduced by half ./bw/DP/mis
