Subsidy to the salaries of employees from PFRON and benefits from FGŚP
An employer employing disabled people and benefiting from subsidies to the remuneration of those employees from the State Fund for Rehabilitation of the Disabled Persons (PFRON) may also apply for subsidies to the salaries of employees covered by economic stoppage or reduced working time, following the outbreak of COVID-19, from the Guaranteed Employee Benefits Fund (FGŚP), provided for in Article 15g of the Act on the so-called anti-crisis package. However, it is not possible to receive two subsidies simultaneously.
