Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme/Furlough leave
Undoubtedly, the most important announcement for employers to come out of this year's budget has to be the extension of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme until 30 September 2021, which will provide a lifeline to organisations that will still be affected by restrictions on social contact into the summer months.
HM Revenue & Customs has updated its furlough guidance to confirm that the scheme can be used where employees are unable to work because they are caring for children while schools are closed.
The furlough scheme has been extended until the end of April 2021, the chancellor has announced.
