Andrew Jackson Solicitors have published an article on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
From an employment law perspective, one of the key features of the Government’s response to the Covid-19 outbreak has been its publication and updates of Guidance dealing with the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS).
The Guidance set out details regarding which employers could furlough which employees and what would be paid. Ultimately, the Guidance indicated that the CJRS was there to assist employers who were affected by Covid-19. However, the Guidance has no real legal effect.
