Furlough: Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS)
The Government Job Retention Scheme was introduced due to COVID-19. This scheme allows charities and businesses to put employees who would otherwise be unemployed because of the coronavirus on ‘Furlough’. Employers have access to Government support to continue paying part of these furloughed employees’ salaries and potentially protect the employees from redundancy.
This scheme closes on the 30th April 2021.
