New Job Support Scheme

From next month, a new Job Support Scheme from the government will replace the current furlough arrangements. 

The scheme has been expanded to include employees at firms that are told to shut because of coronavirus rules

Alongside this, the government is increasing the Local Restrictions Support Grant scheme to up to £3,000 per month to businesses in England, to be paid sooner after closure than current arrangements.

Further details on the expanded Job Support Scheme are available online.
