Temporary compensation scheme for platform workers
A temporary compensation scheme was introduced for self-employed workers including platform workers (workers without a business registry number) who expect a loss of revenue. The self-employed person can recover 75% of the expected loss of income not taxable at source, however not exceeding DKK 23,000 (€3,084) per month, on condition that the person solemnly declares an expected loss of revenue of at least 30% due to COVID-19 between 9 March to 9 June 2020. The parties agreed to also examine whether zero-hour contract workers could be covered by the scheme ( further information here ).
