Unsure if your employer received a COVID-19 Wage Subsidy for you?

All employers are entitled to apply for the Wage Subsidy for any of their employees. But if you’re unsure whether you’ve received it, there’s a way you can find out.

From the Ministry of Social Development:

If you’re employer has received the Wage Subsidy but you’re not being paid or you think your pay is wrong or you have questions about how the subsidy is being applied to you, you should talk to your employer in the first instance.

Ask your employer if they listed your name on the application, as they can apply for the subsidy for some or all of their employees.

If you can’t find out from your employer whether you were included in their application, The Ministry of Social Development can tell you if you were listed.

You will need to complete this form: Was I included in my employer application?

The Ministry of Social Development can only provide this information in response to completion of a form.
