The government's Job Support Scheme (JSS) is postponed until the furlough scheme (Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme) ends.
Once the Job Support Scheme opens
The scheme will provide financial support to help employers keep their staff employed and avoid redundancies during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Employers may be eligible for support if they:
- have to reduce staff hours because there's less work
- are legally required to close their business as a result of coronavirus restrictions, for example local or national lockdown restrictions
