Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)/ COVID-19 Paid Downtime Absence payment

It was the company’s target to have the wage subsidy payment made in late July. However, due to the complexities of the wage subsidy payment, the company requires further considerations to ensure to their calculations are correctly made, as a result the expected payment date has been delayed.

The wage subsidy payment for the COVID-19 lay-off period of April 12th to June 6th 2020 is now expected to be issued in late August.

While I am disappointed with the delay, I am more concerned about the company issuing proper Wage Subsidy payment to our membership, which is the priority.

The Ford Motor Company will be issuing further information about the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)/ COVID-19 Paid Downtime Absence payment over the next few weeks.
