COVID-19 – Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – guidance updated 9 and 15 April 2020 and new Treasury Direction

This note is current as at 16 April 2020

16 April 2020

Although the Government updated its guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (the “Scheme”) as recently as 4 April 2020, it issued a third version on the evening of 9 April and a fourth version yesterday afternoon. It has also now published a Treasury Direction (made under sections 71 and 76 of the Coronavirus Act 2020) setting out the legal framework for the Scheme – which regrettably departs from the guidance in a number of respects. Read the CMS UK employment team’s update on the latest developments.
