CERB and wage subsidy: where are we at?

16 Apr @ 9:00 AM – 9:45 AM EST

On March 18, 2020, the federal government announced several economic measures to support workers and businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak, including income support measures for employees and a wage subsidy program to support businesses. Since then, details and changes to both programs have been announced gradually, leading to confusion amongst employers and employees alike. Even as the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (“CERB”) launched last week, and the wage subsidy program was legislated over the weekend, we know many are still left with questions.

Join Kecia Podetz and Erica Bennett in a live webcast as they explain both the CERB and wage subsidy measures. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about these programs and have your questions answered:

  • Who is eligible?
  • What are the benefits?
  • How to apply?
  • How does the CERB interact with other income support measures such as EI benefits?
  • Can I apply for the wage subsidy if I have no work for my employees?
  • and more…
