Agreement From Employees to Apply for the Subsidy | Practical Advice

Mon Aug. 23rd 2021

It has come to our attention that before applying for the subsidy employers must take all practicable steps to obtain consent from their staff to share their personal information with the Ministry of Social Development.

Even if you did this last year the advice we have received is that the exercise should be repeated for the current subsidy.

If you have already applied for the subsidy and don’t have the written consent from staff to apply, we recommend you do this as soon as possible.

If you would like the template for this purpose please let us know or if you have any questions, just call.


Thelma worked with me quickly and efficiently on a personal grievance. She dealt with the issues with grace and empathy which gave me the confidence that the issue would be dealt with on my behalf in the most professional manner with an outcome that was fair and reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use Thelma again in the future.
