Temporary Lay-off and Short-Time Working Policy and Procedure

COVID-19 Hub Human Resources COVID-19 Region: | Reference: IPA11

This policy will be a key policy through the COVID-19 pandemic if an employer is looking to make use of the Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme due to a downturn in work. This policy sets out how an employer can temporarily lay off or give short-time working and take advantage of the EWSS where there is 30% reduction in turnover (see full policy for details). The policy has been updated to reflect the current Level 5 status in the Republic of Ireland. The title of this policy has also been changed to ‘Temporary Lay-off and Short-Time Working Policy and Procedure’. Previously it was the ‘Furlough Policy and Procedure’.
