This week Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak MP, announced that the Job Retention Scheme will be extended for another four months, until the end of October.
From August to October the scheme will continue, for all sectors and all regions of the United Kingdom, but with greater flexibility to support the transition back to work. Employers currently using the scheme will be able to bring back furloughed employees part time. The Government will ask employers to start sharing, with the Government, the costs of paying people’s salaries.
