Acas response to government’s Job Support Scheme

The Chancellor has today announced a package of new measures to help support businesses and protect jobs impacted by coronavirus.

The package includes a Job Support Scheme that will be introduced from 1 November after the furlough scheme ends.

Acas Chief Executive, Susan Clews, said:

"The Government’s new Job Support Scheme will be welcomed by many workers and businesses impacted by the coronavirus outbreak that were concerned about their welfare and livelihoods after the end of the furlough scheme.  

"It is a particularly difficult time for the whole country and we’re regularly updating our website to reflect any new advice or legal changes that can benefit employees and employers during this crisis."
