The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been hugely beneficial for over a million employers across the UK, and will continue to support jobs until the end of October. However, from 1st July, many new changes have been introduced.
As the government’s furlough scheme winds down in upcoming months, employers will need to contribute to employees’ wages and the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will end fully at the end of October.
From 1st July, employers can bring furloughed employees back to work on a part-time basis, while still being able to claim under the CJRS for the hours not worked. This new flexibility will help businesses with reopening and help boost the economy.
