Coronavirus Job Support Scheme (updated 6 November 2020)

    Coronavirus Job Support Scheme (updated 6 November 2020)

    Please note that the Job Support Scheme has been postponed in light of the extension to the Government's Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

    What is the Coronavirus Job Support Scheme?

    The new Coronavirus Job Support Scheme (JSS) was designed to protect vulnerable jobs in businesses who face a downturn in work over the winter period due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The scheme was originally due to start on 1st November 2020 and was intended to replace the furlough / CJRS, which was due to finish on 31st October 2020. It was proposed that the new scheme would run initially for 6 months, i.e. until 1st April 2021.

    The JSS has now been postponed in light of the extension to the furlough / CJRS scheme.
