Job Retention Scheme

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, my work has centred around providing protection to those that are likely to lose out financially.

To their credit, the UK Government have been forthcoming in their assistance and have provided billions of pounds in support for those that will be hit hardest.

However, there are a number of gaps in the provisions that they are outlining, including within the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

I have written to the Chancellor today urging him to extend the cut off date to include those recently employed. You can read my letter below.
