STOP PRESS (18/11/20): The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Coronavirus, Calculation of a Week’s Pay) (Amendment) Regulations 2020, SI 2020/1296, which were made on 17 November 2020 and came into force on 18 November 2020, amend the Employment Rights Act 1996 (Coronavirus, Calculation of a Week’s Pay) Regulations 2020, SI 2020/814 to ensure that they will apply for the duration of the extended CJRS, ie until 31 March 2020.
UPDATE (18/11/20): As first announced on 31 November, the CJRS is now extended from 1 November 2020 and will now end on 31 March 2021. For further information on the extended CJRS, see Practice Note: Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (extended version from 1 November 2020). The Job Support Scheme, which was scheduled to come into effect on 1 November 2020, has been postponed until the CJRS ends. The Coronavirus Job Retention Bonus Scheme has been withdrawn and the Job Retention Bonus will not be paid in February 2021 (see Practice Note: Coronavirus Job Retention Bonus Scheme [Archived]). Instead, the government will redeploy a retention incentive at the appropriate time. This Practice Note has been updated to take account of these changes.
