Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme extended until October

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme extended until October

The scheme will continue until the end of October. Furloughed workers across the UK will continue to receive 80% of their current salary, up to £2,500.

The scheme will continue in its current form until the end of July. Changes to allow more flexibility will come in from the start of August. More specific details and information around implementation will be made available by the end of this month.

From the start of August, furloughed workers will be able to return to work part-time with employers being asked to pay a percentage towards the salaries of their furloughed staff. The employer payments will substitute the contribution the government is currently making, ensuring that staff continue to receive 80% of their salary, up to £2,500 a month.
