Coronavirus unemployment payment to rise to €350 per week and Government to pay 70pc of retained workers’ salaries

The emergency welfare payment for workers who have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus crisis will increase to €350 per week, Independent.ie understands.

And in a significant new move the Government will also pay 70pc of employee wages up to €410 per week for businesses who are willing to meet the remainder of their staff’s weekly payment.
