Updated – Employer Guide to Job Retention Scheme (12 May 2020)
The speed with which the Coronavirus has changed the way we live and work is unprecedented. Despite the HMRC portal for the government’s Job Retention Scheme (JRS) going live on Monday 20 April 2020, there is much we do not know about the JRS but it continues to be updated.
Since the employer’s guidance from HMRC on the Job Retention Scheme was first published on 26 March 2020 it has gone through five revisions, the most recent update being on the 20 April 2020 (the previous revision had only taken place three days previously on 17 April 2020).
At the end of last week on 9 April 2020, the Government published new guidance for employers reminding us that, despite being in the grip of a global pandemic, we need to prepare for the future and a new immigration landscape.
