Morocco’s Social Security Fund (CNSS) is set to launch a website for employees in the tourism sector affected by the COVID-19 crisis to request government compensation.
Companies will be able to declare employees and trainees eligible to benefit from a monthly compensation of MAD 2,000 ($218), covering July through the end of December.
Companies should declare a decrease of a least 25% in revenue to be able to benefit from the compensation programs and should also commit to maintaining at least 80% of their employees.
The CNSS compensation program will concern employees and trainees of classified accommodation establishments, travel agencies, and tourist transport companies.The fund will also compensate tour guides affiliated to CNSS under laws 98.15 and 99.15 relating to the medical and social coverage of non-salaried people.
The Special Fund for the Management and Response to COVID-19 will cover the compensation costs.
