Computation Details for Temporary Enhancement to Jobs Support Scheme (JSS) for May 2020

As part of the Government’s efforts to save jobs and support wages with timely disbursement, the additional JSS subsidy (75% across all sectors in May) will be computed using November 2019 wages as a proxy. Actual subsidy will be determined later based on the wages paid in May 2020, as reflected in blue/bolded below.

This means that employers who do not pay wages in May 2020, or who place employees on mandatory no-pay leave in the month of May will not benefit from the 75% subsidy. Please see details in the table below and worked examples in subsequent pages.
