The Croatian Employers Association (HUP) said on Thursday the measures to help the economy should be extended for as long as the consequences of the coronavirus crisis were felt.

HUP said in a press release it would continue to negotiate with the government on new measures given that the current ones were in place until the end of February, adding that the uncertainty was not good either for employers or their workers.

The shorter working hours measure was adopted at HUP’s initiative and is in place until the end of the year, which provides for “transparency and predictability in doing business,” the press release said, adding that it was “a good example of adopting measures in agreement with the business sector” and that it “saved tens of thousands of jobs.”

In upcoming meetings, HUP will ask for the existing measures to be extended after February, for as long as the economic consequences of the coronavirus crisis are present, as well as for support to all with drops in turnover and revenue, regardless of whether they are formally not allowed to work, the press release said.
