Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme
Guidance Notes on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and Furlough Leave
The Chancellor announced a range of support measures for employers affected
by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, including grants available under
the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
These guidance notes provide information on how to qualify for the
Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the type of support that the scheme
supplies. The scheme is intended to support employers to continue paying
employees who would otherwise be made redundant or put on an unpaid period
of lay-off during this crisis.
The guidance notes also explain what Furlough Leave is and look at some of
the key issues to consider when you want to put employees on furlough
leave. Information on how redundancy and furlough relate is also available.
