EWSS – Public Health Restrictions (“EWSS-PHR”) is a separate system of wage support applicable for businesses directly affected by the public health restrictions imposed by government in December 2021. EWSS-PHR will run from 1 February 2022 until 31 May 2022.
The support rates payable per pay date are as follows:
|Employee gross weekly wage||1 January – 28 February 2022||1 – 31 March 2022||1 April – 31 May 2022|
|Less than €151.50||Nil||Nil||Nil|
|From €151.50 to €202.99||€203||€151.50||€100|
|From €203 to €299.99||€250||€203||€100|
|From €300 to €399.99||€300||€203||€100|
|From €400 to €1,462||€350||€203||€100|
|More than €1,462||Nil||Nil||Nil|
Please note that employers should not claim ‘EWSS’ and ‘EWSS-PHR’ in respect of the same employee on the same pay date as this will result in an error, causing neither to be paid by Revenue.
