Please be informed that it currently not possible to apply for unemployment benefit payments alongside reduced employment ratio due to temporary company recessions as the application format production is not yet completed.
The Directorate of Labour is currently working on a digital implementation for the applications, and it is not possible to apply for reduced employment ratio via The Directorate of Labour’s website while this work is being completed.
A notification will be sent out when the application database is ready and individuals who have had their employment ratio reduced are able to apply. Please note that all applications will be valid from the date of which the reduced employment was arranged, but not earlier than from the 15th of March. The Directorate of Labour requests that patience be shown due to increased workloads and encourages everyone to monitor announcements on the directorate’s website.
We thank you for your understanding.
Directorate of Labour.
