By BBN Staff:  A Statutory Instrument being developed will ensure that persons who catch COVID-19 at least three weeks after losing their jobs will be covered and paid.

CEO Doug Singh also announced a “double-up” of pensions to be made by April 2.

For employers, there will be a waiver of interest and payments for contributions not made, though a return must be made and filed.

SSB will also look at financial incentives for employers to aid in the economic stimulus.
