Ola set up up a special ‘COVID-19’ fund to help drivers impacted by the pandemic. This fund will help compensate for the loss of business revenue for drivers who might get affected by COVID-19. Ola drivers in Australia who are affected by COVID-19 or required to self-isolate as a result of exposure or overseas travel will be able to claim financial assistance for up to 14 days while their account is on hold. The amount drivers receive will be equivalent to 14 days worth of their individual average daily earnings on the Ola platform. Active drivers eligible for the scheme will be required to submit documentation to support their claim. These measures will be supplemented by initiatives to promote mental wellbeing among drivers and an ongoing program to ensure that the official guidance to protect the health and safety of drivers and customers is communicated and followed.
