The scheme, which is intended to keep millions of people in jobs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, allows firms to furlough employees with the Government paying 80% of their wages up to a maximum of £2,500, was open until 31 May 2020.
Last Friday – 17 April 2020, the Government announced an extension to the furlough scheme until 30 June 2020.
Rishi Sunak said in his announcement “We’ve taken unprecedented action to support jobs and businesses through this period of uncertainty, including the UK-wide Job Retention Scheme.
With the extension of the coronavirus lockdown measures yesterday, it is the right decision to extend the furlough scheme for a month to the end of June to provide clarity.
It is vital for people’s livelihoods that the UK economy gets up and running again when it is safe to do so, and I will continue to review the scheme so it is supporting our recovery."
This extension is welcomed and means that firms will no longer be forced to issue redundancy notices over the next few days in order to comply with the 45-day consultation requirement.
