On 27 March I emailed you to advise that the latest guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme had been published at the links below, and we committed to keep you regularly updated.
I can now confirm that the employer guidance and guidance for employees have been further updated in line with some of the main queries we have received from stakeholders. Whilst all the guidance has been refreshed, the main areas I would draw your attention to are:
- the more detailed information on scheme eligibility
- further information on how to calculate a claim
- clarification of what constitutes wages.
I would encourage you to please review the links above if you would like more information about the scheme.
We will continue to keep you informed to ensure that you have access to the assistance you need.
