THESE companies to offer financial support to COVID-positive employees and drivers

Financial support to COVID-positive employees: Ride-hailing major Uber on Friday said its drivers testing positive for COVID-19 will receive a one-time payout of up to Rs 6,800 in partial earnings support for 14 days.

Drivers furnishing a positive RT-PCR test from an accredited lab will receive a one-time payout of up to a maximum of Rs 6,800 in partial earnings support for 14 days, depending upon their city of residence and engagement on the platform, according to a statement

This is in addition to Uber’s previous announcement of the Rs 18.5 crore (USD 2.5 million) initiative to get 1.5 lakh drivers on its platform vaccinated over the next six months.

Uber said COVID-positive drivers will be unable to access the platform while they’re receiving partial earnings support as a safety measure to help limit the spread of the virus.
