This guidance sheet is intended to provide answers to some of the many questions that we are receiving in regard to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. We will update this guidance document regularly and keep updated answers on our website.
What is the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme?
The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme is a ‘temporary’ scheme open to Employers for at least 3 months (with the potential to be extended dependent on the pandemic situation) starting on 1st March 2020.
It is designed to support Employers who have been severely affected by COVID-19. There is no financial limit on what Employers can claim (but there is a cap for how much can be claimed per Employee which is £2500).
