We are currently advising our employer and employee clients alike in relation to:
Rishi Sunak’s Job Support Scheme
- which employers and employees qualify?
- what are the rules of the scheme for businesses closed due to lockdown?
- what are the rules of the scheme for businesses not closed due to lockdown?
- how does it differ from the furlough scheme?
- what happens if there is not enough work for the employee?
- what if the employee cannot work due to ill health (including Covid)?
We are also advising our clients on:
- the job retention bonus
- the new criminal offence of allowing self-isolating workers to come to work
- injunctions and interim relief
Further advice is being given to our clients on:
Health & Safety Detriments / Dismissals in the time of Coronavirus
