Bad weather money

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bad weather compensation was in Germany of companies in the construction industry one of the employment office compensation to March 31 granted during the period from 1 November, if no work was done due to weather conditions on individual days. The bad weather allowance was introduced in 1959, then initially replaced in 1996 by the winter loss allowance and this from 2006 by the seasonal short-time work allowance .

The bad weather benefit was to be treated like unemployment benefit and was therefore tax-free ( § 3 EStG), but was subject to the tax progression proviso .
