The Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) is currently in effect until 30 April 2022. However, payments will taper down until they are phased out by that date.
There were no changes to the EWSS during October and November 2021. A two-rate structure of €151.50 and €203 has been in place since December 2021 through to February 2022. During March and April 2022, the payment will be a flat rate of €100.
The scheme has been closed to new employers since 1 January 2022.
