Extension of the furlough scheme
Employers can continue to make use of the Job Retention (furlough) Scheme to help them retain staff through coronavirus restrictions until 30 April 2021. However, it may be extended again.
As a reminder, this involves placing staff on ‘furlough’, during which time they do no work for the company. The government then pays 80% of their wages. Staff can be flexibly furloughed, meaning they only work some of their hours and the government pays part of their wages for the rest of the time.
