As a result of representation from the CSNA on behalf of our members to the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection regarding part time workers and the COVID-19 emergency payment, we are delighted to report that the Department have listened to our concerns!
As of the 22nd of April, the Department have set up a ‘hotline’ for employers to notify them of any employee that voluntarily leaves work in order to claim Covid payments.
The Department has set up a process to manage these complaints. Employers who have these concerns are welcome to provide details to a dedicated email for this purpose to C19EmployerReports@welfare.ie.
Employers can be assured that officials in the Department will follow up on these notifications, to include requesting the employee to provide formal evidence/written confirmation from the employer as to the reason for leaving before making a decision on the worker’s entitlement to payment.Back to news
