UK Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: Further Guidance on New Recruits and Re-hiring

    View Author April 2020

    Another week, another version of the CJRS guidance! It is almost as though the CJRS portal were not already up and running, with the consequence that changes made now are effectively retrospective to claims already in the system.

    Last night, the government issued v.7 of the employer guidance. This time the main changes are tweaks to the sections dealing with new recruits, ex-employees and fixed-term contracts. There is also some new wording dealing with the involvement of trade unions.
