There are a few schemes setup now and we're not allowed to call them furlough. The Job Support Scheme will have a few versions from 1 November once the current furlough scheme comes to an end.
The key points you need to know about the "Lockdown JSS";
1. The JSS will provide temporary support to businesses whose premises have been legally required to close as a direct result of Coronavirus restrictions.
2. The JSS will pay a grant to an employer for eligible employees who have been instructed to and cease work at the relevant premises, if these employees were in an operating PAYE scheme at 23 September 2020.
The grant per eligible employee is two-thirds of their normal pay up to a limit of £2100 per month. Claims must not overlap and must be made monthly in arrears.
