Help for employers during the coronavirus
Coronavirus is having a significant impact on businesses in the UK. Many have had to suddenly close or reduce their services.
For some, the pandemic has led to total closure. For others, it has led to a fall in demand.
To help, the government has put in place support to protect jobs, including the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
Through the furlough scheme, businesses can grant staff a leave of absence and reclaim up to 80% of their wages.
