Employers must continue to pay the employees’ salaries in full during the period they receive aid. The NOW 2.0 is accessible to both employers who have applied for NOW 1.0 and those who have not. Although the NOW 2.0 builds on the NOW 1.0, a number of elements have been added or modified in the NOW 2.0. In this Q&A the principal elements of the NOW 2.0 are discussed.
