The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (the Scheme) allows UK employers who cannot maintain their current workforce because their operations have been severely affect by coronavirus to “furlough” employees and access financial support to cover some of the furloughed employees’ wage costs during the crisis.  This allows employers, who may be facing financial difficulty due to the uncertainty of the present climate, to take temporary measures to avoid redundancies where possible.
