The Earthquake Employment Support Package is made up of two options: Payments for employers, who want to maintain the employer/employee relationship and needs to take time to consider the business viability:

Available to the self employed, sole trader, contractor or business owners who draw a wage. Payment will be made directly to the employer who will then pay the employee. The wage subsidy will be paid:

• for up to six weeks from 22 February 2011 at a rate of $500 per week per fulltime employee (over 20 hours per week) • or a rate of $300 per week per employee for part time employees (anyone working 20 hours a week or less)

The subsidy is not subject to GST but is subject to PAYE. If you are an employer who can operate and meet your employee obligations you do not qualify for this subsidy or your employees are receiving other income assistance.

Payments for employees where the employer has decided not to continue their business and employees are no longer able to work and/or receive a wage:

• weekly payment of $400 net for fulltime employees (over 20 hours per week) • $240 net for part time employees (less than 20 hours per week) paid over six weeks who have been displaced as a result of Christchurch’s earth quake.

For now these payments will be made for six weeks from 22 February 2011; however government will be reviewing this for further extensions.

You need to talk to your employer about whether you still have a job and can be paid. Employers can get the Earthquake Support Subsidy to assist them in paying your wages while they work out what they are going to do. If you can’t contact them and you are not working or being paid, then you can apply for the Earthquake Job Loss Cover payment.
