On 31 March, the Temporary Emergency Bridging Measure for Sustained Employment (Tijdelijke Noodmaatregel Overbrugging voor behoud van Werkgelegenheid, or NOW for short) was brought into effect.
This Q&A will outline the most frequently asked questions - and answers - about the NOW. Please note that the NOW provides for very specific financial requirements in addition to its basic conditions. As we do not want you to get lost in the details of the scheme, we will address them only briefly.
Should you have any questions that are not answered by this Q&A, you are most welcome to contact any of our employment lawyers.
