The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme extended by one month to reflect continuing social distancing measures.

Following on from the recent Government announcement to keep the social distancing measures in place, Rishi Sunak said the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) would now be open until the end of June – providing businesses with the certainty they need.

The scheme, which allows firms to furlough employees with the government paying cash grants of 80% of their wages up to a maximum of £2,500, was originally open for three months and backdated from the March 1 to the end of May.
