The aim of the aid is to support employers who are obliged to organise telework and to enable them to continue their activity. It may be applied in cases when the resumption of activities on the company's premises cannot be envisaged. It is not intended to compensate for a disability. Thus, the aid is intended for any employer of an employee recognised as disabled (or in the process of becoming recognised as disabled) for whom teleworking is newly set up in the context of the pandemic and the resumption of activity (no teleworking measures having being set for that employee before).
Conditions for receiving aid
The aid may concern the cost of computer equipment, office chair, transport costs, internet connection, etc. On the other hand, the funding does not cover the provision of the premises and the costs related to this space such as heating or electricity in particular. Expenses must be incurred during the pandemic period. The aid covers the amount excluding VAT of the materials purchased. The funding does not apply to employers who set up teleworking before 13 March for the beneficiary concerned.
