Croatian gov’t subsidies aid companies for shorter working week

So far 534 companies with a total of 24,192 employees have registered in Croatia for government subsidies to cover their employees as they make the increasingly popular decision to shorten their working week, according to a report by local paper Poslovni Dnevnik.

The government subsidies will ensure the payment of all of them up with up to HRK 2,000 (EUR 265.60) per employee, and the measure will be applied by the end of the year, the paper said, as cited by portal Total Croatia.

Companies and enterprises from particularly vulnerable industries who have experienced a pandemic-induced drop in their income of more than 60% when compared to last year will be able to count on HRK 4,000 in state aid for their employee salaries by the end of this year, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković announced last week.
