On 20 March 2020, the Government announced measures to protect employers and employees under the coronavirus job retention scheme (CJRS). The CJRS is designed to support employers whose operations have been severely affected by coronavirus (COVID-19), and to help them to retain their employees and protect the UK economy.
The CJRS was due to end on 31 October 2020. It was initially intended to be extended until 2 December 2020 but on 5 November it was confirmed that it will now run until 31 March 2021.

On 3 March 2021, in the Budget statement, it was confirmed the scheme would be extended once again and is now expected to conclude on 30 September 2021.

Employees included on an RTI submission by 23 September 2020 can qualify for the November 2020 extension if they are re-employed. In Budget 2021, it was confirmed that the same 80% level of support for a further three months to
