Gov’t gives financial aid to COVID-affected staff
by Press release

Micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), including exporters, can avail of the government’s financial assistance program for their workers affected by the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

Under the Covid-19 Adjustment Measurement Program (CAMP), affected workers, or those whose work faces  or suffers interruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic, will receive a one-time aid of P5,000 in lump-sum, non-conditional and regardless of employment status.

Applicants must be private establishments that have implemented flexible work arrangements (FWAs), such as reduction of workhours or workdays, rotation of workers and forced leave; those who temporarily stopped operations; and those on skeletal force as mitigating measures to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Those not working are also entitled, but work from home and others paid by employers are not qualified for the Department of Labor and Employment’s CAMP meant to mitigate the adverse economic impacts and reduction of income brought by the coronavirus disease.

To apply for assistance for their workers, affected firms must submit an establishment report on the Covid-19 pursuant to Labor Advisory No. 9 s. 2020, and company payroll for the month prior to the implementation of FWAs or temporary closure.

The report details establishment data, summary of affected workers due to FWAs or temporary closure, and profile of affected workers.

Applications with complete documentary requirements shall be submitted online to the appropriate DOLE regional office, or any of its provincial/field offices.

Labor Advisory No. 12 s. 2020 stipulates that the financial support for Covid-19-affected workers shall be issued directly to employees’ payroll account through bank transfer, or through money remittance for cash payroll.

Apart from the financial aid, CAMP also offers affected workers access to available job opportunities suitable to their qualifications through job matching, referral and placement services either for local or overseas employment, employment coaching, and labor market information.

The CAMP shall be effective on March 21, and shall be applied retroactively from January 2020, according to the advisory.
