The Provincial Government is reminding employers to submit applications under the Newfoundland and Labrador COVID-19 Essential Worker Support Program by August 20.


Employers are encouraged to register as soon as possible to ensure that employee applications are received before the deadline. The program is administered using the Labour Market Programs Support System and employers who have not used the system before are required to register.


To date, more than 1,000 employers have applied for the program, representing more than 11,000 essential workers. Over 850 applications have been processed, with payments made to employers for almost 8,300 employees.
