As part of the Winter Economy Plan, on 24 September the Chancellor announced the Coronavirus Job Support Scheme (JSS). The JSS is designed to protect viable jobs in businesses who are facing lower demand over the winter months due to Covid-19, to help keep their employees attached to the workforce.
The JSS will be brought in on 1 November – the day after the Job Retention (or ‘furlough’) Scheme ends – and run for 6 months.
We now have details of the scheme, and have produced a factsheet to guide you through the JSS, that you might be good stewards of what the Lord has given you (1 Peter 4:10) and love and honour your employees, as Christ calls us to love one another (John 13:34).
You can find the full details of the JSS on the government website here.
