The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS)
What is the current status of the CJRS?
- The CJRS was originally scheduled to be replaced by the Job Support Scheme (JSS) on 1 November. However, following the introduction of a second lockdown in England starting 5 November, the CJRS has now been extended until 31 March 2021, with contribution levels to be reviewed in January 2021.
- In the meantime, the JSS has been postponed, and the Job Retention Bonus has been withdrawn. The government has promised a replacement incentive scheme in due course.
