As the government winds up the current Job retention ‘furlough’ scheme at the end of October, we have now been provided with details of the job support scheme that will commence on 1st November.
The job support scheme is very different from the original job retention scheme, in that it doesn’t offer the same level of support from government. However it is hoped that the new scheme will continue to provide some support to employers along with job security to employees.
Below are some key facts that you need to know on the job support scheme and further information can be found via the government website on how to apply the scheme within your company.
Don’t forget there is also the job retention bonus of £1000 per employee retained up to January 2021 and it is hoped that with the new scheme and the job retention bonus, that this will support companies through the winter months.
