Support For Employers During The COVID-19 Pandemic

In unprecedented times, a key focus for government has been to ensure that the economy is in a fit state to recover once the current global health crisis is over. In order to do so, a priority is keeping people in their jobs. With supply problems, forced closures and significantly less customer activity in many sectors, employers may not have sufficient cashflow to keep paying salaries where income has been slashed. Therefore, a package of measures has been announced and guidance was further updated in April, to help gain a clearer picture of what the government is trying to achieve.
