New Job Support Scheme and other updates

Just as we thought we were only having to manage the return of staff to home working, after most of us had returned to work in a COVID-19 secure way, we now need to understand the announcements made regarding the new Job Support scheme. 

  • Will this delay the increased job losses predicted by many business sectors?
  • Will this enable any of you to benefit further and allow your businesses to operate on reduced revenues?

Understanding the opportunity the Government has now announced is the first challenge we face as leaders and decision-makers.

Initially, there were inconsistencies between the announcement made in the Commons and the Treasuries web page detailing the main elements of the scheme, as ever the devils in the detail, so we have waited a little while before we drafted a summary, for your benefit,  on how the new scheme will work. It will still require calculations for each employee who you wish to claim for under the new scheme and we are here to assist you in that process should you benefit from our HR services, if not we can still help,  give us a call as we can advise how best you can access the advice and support of our experienced and qualified HR Consultant team to save you valuable time.  

Please follow the link to download our summary of the new Scheme in addition to the other announcements made yesterday.  Download Summary
