CORONAVIRUS JOB RETENTION SCHEME

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme CRJS

CORONAVIRUS JOB RETENTION SCHEME

On 22 October, the Chancellor announced that the CJRS “furlough” scheme would end on 31 October 2020 to be replaced by a new Job Support Scheme (JSS). However, at 6.45 pm on 31 October 2020 when the Prime Minister announced a month long lockdown for England he announced that the CJRS furlough scheme would be extended for one further month with employers able to claim a grant of 80% of employees’ usual pay for hours that they are unable to work. Employers will be responsible for paying NICs and pension costs.

The replacement JSS will start when the extended CJRS ends.

The Government has updated the CJRS guidance on the Gov.UK website:
