“CEWS Offers Businesses a Win-Win Opportunity”
Monday, April 20th at 1:00pm
This session, led by Amin Mawani, will compare the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS), the Employment Insurance (EI), and the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) programs to analyze which one is the most generous to employees based on their pre-crisis wages. CEWS seems ideal for those earning greater than $37,569 while CERB is ideal for those earning less, with EI somewhere in between depending on wages. This webinar offers a practical guide to employers and employees as they consider whether to apply for CEWS.
