friendly economy, reporter Kwon Ae-ri is with you. Reporter Kwon, aren't many academies and kindergartens closed in the metropolitan area this week? It seems that both dual-income couples have become quite embarrassed, but today (31st) we are going to find out the government support measures that can be used in this case.


Yes, as children are increasingly being blocked from childcare outside the home, the pain of parents, especially dual-income parents, is not only so much.

For the first time, there is a family care payment that has already received nearly 120,000 people this year. The application period for some of these family care expenses has been extended to September 30th.

If a child up to the 2nd grade of elementary school age 8 or a child with a disability under 18 years old is required to stay at home for corona-related reasons, they can receive this care fee with up to 10 days of unpaid family care leave per year. It costs up to 50,000 won per day.

However, if it was not completely closed, I tried to apply until the first semester, but due to circumstances, the period was extended. There is no deadline if the school is completely closed.

And there are a lot of stories like'employment insurance should be in place' about this care payment on the Internet as if it were real.

Not true. Even if you are not eligible for employment insurance, you can receive it even if you are a non-regular worker.

There may be cases in which workplaces that were violating the regulations related to employment insurance were revealed in the process of applying for child care payments and received attention. However, the requirements for support for child care expenses do not include insurance coverage and employment type.

If there are people who have not thought of applying because of the information that is spreading incorrectly, please do not lose money and apply.


And if you have young children, are there any systems that support telecommuting and jet lag?


Yes, I hope that the bosses as well as the employees who are applying for this should watch carefully. There are pregnant women or children under the age of 12 in the 6th grade of elementary school. Such people work from home or at a designated time. You can apply for flexible work like commuting.

Companies that allow employees to work like this are paid by the country to the company. The country pays 50,000 won to the company if parents and employees with elementary children work flexibly for up to two times a week, and 100,000 won for more than three times a week.

For each such employee, it costs up to 5.2 million won per year. This is not the story when the important thing is to reduce the working hours itself.

It is to encourage the case of working from home, time lag, selective work, and flexible work. Not only small companies, but also medium-sized companies and non-large companies can apply.

There is a limit on the number of people. Up to 30% of employees in the company's employment insurance can receive subsidies within the limit of 70.

There have been a lot of people receiving this this year. By July, more than 15,400 people were supported, more than three times the number of last year.

In addition, the procedure for receiving this money has been simplified due to the coronavirus situation. Business owners can submit proof that our company has such employees at the job center, but so far, the screening process has been conducted first.

However, I decided to skip the screening and approve it immediately. Evidence is also recorded at the house of Sang-Sarang, starting work, ending work now, and reporting information exchanged through messenger or e-mail.

I just mentioned is that the time is the same, but the place is at home, or the time is freely held in a different time zone. Is there also a subsidy for reducing the working hours itself?


There is also a “child-rearing working hours reduction system” that has restrictions on the age of children, and today, I will talk about a system without such restrictions.

It is called a work life balance and a work life balance that a person who worked full-time can apply for when reducing working hours for a certain period of time.

In principle, you can apply for a company of any size, and both you and the company can get paid.

Because you work less, your wages will decrease. At this time, as you can see on the screen, the worker himself pays from 400,000 won to 600,000 won per month. The amount varies depending on how much time you spend working.

In response to the coronavirus situation, the amount has been increased from last year. Companies that allow such employees receive 400,000 won per person per month unless they are large companies.

And if you have such an employee and you have hired more, there is a separate subsidy for it. There is no limit to the number of employees you can receive per company.

As of July, nearly 8,600 people received this this year. It increased more than four times from the first quarter. It has increased a lot, but it is relatively less known. The qualification requirements are quite wide.

In the case of those who have already used up the family care expenses mentioned earlier, you may be able to discuss this with the company. If you can take a good look and use it, it would be nice to use it.


Yes, it would be great if not only workers but also the company knew and used these parts well.
