With pubs, cafes, restaurants and gyms told to close tonight until further notice, more jobs are now at risk.

Good news then that the Government has introduced a Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to protect jobs

  • Employers will be able to apply for a grant to pay up to 80% of an employee's wages, up to £2500 a month
  • This will cover the wages of retained workers who are currently unable to work because of the crisis
  • Covers all sizes of business.

Hopefully this will reduce the number of redundancies and layoffs
