MAKE UK: Government extends furlough

After the announcement of the November extension of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) on 31 October, the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, has announced today (5 November 2020) a further extension to the CJRS until the end of March 2021.   

The Government states that the purpose of this further extension is to enable support to be in place for long enough to help businesses recover and get back on their feet – as well as giving them the certainty they need in coming months.
