2022 Employment Support Scheme
The 2022 Employment Support Scheme (ESS) opened for applications on 29 April, with around 1.74 million workers eligible under the HK$8,000-per-month subsidy from May to July.
At a webinar on 28 April, Doris Ho, Head of Policy Innovation and Co-ordination Office, and Sam Sze, Partner, of PwC Hong Kong – the Government-appointed agent for ESS -- introduced the updated scheme and briefed members on the application process.
Ho told members that the current scheme was more flexible that the previous tranche by allowing applicants change the number of employees on a month-by-month basis, to take into account changing market conditions.
Self-employed people can also apply for a one-off subsidy under the ESS.
