As an employer, how do you know if you are obligated to grant a corona premium?
Although people in most sectors have moved to the mandatory allocation of a corona premium, this obligation is not unconditional. As a rule, only those employers who achieved "good results" in recent years will be required to grant a premium on a mandatory basis.
For example, in most sectors they have linked the mandatory award to a positive operating result, and an increase in turnover in the (calendar) years 2019 and 2020.
Because each sector has its own nuances, it is important to find out to which joint committee the employees in your company belong and then to check which conditions the sector agreement imposes exactly. It is best to contact your social secretariat for this. Your accountant can then use your company figures to check whether a "good result" has actually been achieved and whether you, as an employer, are therefore obliged to grant a premium.
