The UK Government has issued new guidance on changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) from 1 July 2020. This should allow employers to plan their strategy in relation to staff for the coming months with a little more certainty.

Under these new arrangements, employers will be able to bring furloughed staff back to work on a part-time basis, but continue to make a claim under the CJRS for any normal hours not worked. They will also be required to start contributing to their employees’ wage and other costs from August.

Our employment colleagues have produced an interactive Next Steps Roadmap setting out the key employment law milestones in relation not only to the CJRS, but also the other main issues that employers will need to consider over the coming months as they re-open.  To read more on this and to access the road map click here.
