How do I access the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS)?

Last updated: 25 Nov 2020

It is up to employers to decide whether or not to use the CJRS, and there is no requirement for them to do so. Similarly it is up to employers to decide which staff to furlough and for how long.

There isn’t any action for employees themselves to take, though they can certainly encourage their employers to consider using the scheme, especially if they are actively considering redundancies. Prospect has been pushing employers to make full use of the scheme wherever appropriate in order to protect jobs and incomes.
