WEBINAR: Employers’ Payment Obligations during Alert Level 4

All pricing includes GST.

Special Fee:

Since our Government has enforced a lockdown under COVID-19 Alert Level 4, all non-essential businesses have been required to close. Employers have faced dramatic changes with staff working from home or unable to work.

In this webinar, we will discuss staff payments including:

  • What is required of employers during the COVID-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown?
  • How can you manage employment related aspects of the Government’s business continuity package?
  • What is the criteria for wage subsidies?
  • What do you need to declare if you are seeking wage subsidies?
  • What are your payment obligations to essential and non-essential workers?
  • Does your business qualify for wage subsidies?

This webinar is useful for anyone who is unfamiliar with the wage subsidy scheme, who hasn’t attended previous training about the scheme. This is an informative webinar from an employment perspective, rather than tax focus, and while we encourage questions from attendees, we may not be able to answer all questions.
