The Social Security Office (SSO) is calling on business owners impacted by Covid-19 to confirm that they have had to let go of their staff after being forced to close, so SSO can compensate these workers in line with the law.

Latest reports show that 300,000 people have applied for social security benefits, though only 30,000 business owners have confirmed that they have had to let go of their workers.

The Cabinet had previously given the SSO the greenlight to compensate people who have either lost their jobs or cannot work due to being in contact with Covid-19 patients, as well as those who have lost their jobs after businesses were ordered closed in line with government measures to contain the virus.
