The first weeks after the NOW came into effect have expired. A good time to take stock and, looking ahead to a possible extension of the NOW (which is expected to be decided by the government before 1 June 2020), to list the most important developments. What changes have been made to the current NOW? What will the extension of the NOW look like? What developments are there with regard to support measures for the self-employed (Tozo)?
Our Employment, Pensions and Incentives practice group has compiled the recent developments regarding the NOW and the Tozo in an e-book. On the basis of recent parliamentary debates and adopted motions, the extension of the NOW is also being looked at in advance.
The e-book serves as a reference work for employers and other (independent) entrepreneurs to support their business operations during the current corona crisis. We hope you can make useful use of it.
