From September there will be changes to the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. If you are impacted by this make sure you get advice. Your employer should top up your wages to 80% but there are caps to the amount they have to pay. The Government’s website states:
From “September, the government will pay 70% of wages up to a cap of £2,187.50 for the hours the employee is on furlough. Employers will pay ER NICs and pension contributions and top up employees’ wages to ensure they receive 80% of their wages up to a cap of £2,500, for time they are furloughed.”
Other changes are also on the way in October so it’s important that you know what the changes are. You can find out more details below.
