With the successful rollout of the vaccine programme and the government having published a roadmap for the lifting of the current coronavirus restrictions, hopefully the return to a more normal way of life is on the horizon. The impact of the pandemic on business has not however gone away and will continue to present challenges in the workplace for some time to come.
In this quarterly update we take a look at some changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme before it comes to an end in September.
