Slovenia adopted intervention measures to reimburse salary compensations – subject to strict employer undertakings

In the night from 19 to 20 March 2020, the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Act on Intervention Measures to Salaries and Contributions (ZIUPPP) .

Under this measure, the Republic of Slovenia shall reimburse the employers, for a limited period, for 40 % of the salary compensations paid to employees that were temporarily instructed to wait for work at home (employers are bound to pay them a compensation in the amount of 80% of their salary). For the employees under quarantine who cannot work from home, the Republic of Slovenia shall reimburse 100 % of the compensations.

Important: Employers must exercise their rights to reimbursement in due time by filing an application with the Employment Service of Slovenia. In order to learn more, please download the file below.
