Job Retention Scheme

The UK government portal is now open for employers to make claims under the Job Retention Scheme.  The Scheme has been extended from 31st May to end of June 2020.

Some employers are calling for increased flexibility within the scheme so that furloughed employees can work reduced hours for their existing employer where possible. This would reduce the cost to the taxpayer and allow furloughed employees to be gradually phased back into the workforce when lockdown restrictions are phased out.
