The extended Furlough Scheme
These FAQs deal with the mechanics of furloughing workers under the Job Retention Scheme (JRS) in place during November 2020. The JRS was first put in place to provide employers whose operations had been affected by Coronavirus, with wage assistance from 1 March 2020. It was originally intended to close on 31 October 2020; however, was extended as a result of the Government’s decision to place England into more severe lockdown measures at the start of November 2020.
