Managing your workforce

Practical guidance for employers and businesses on safeguarding health and safety in the workplace, making contingency plans for staff, and issues around holidays, pay and pensions during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.


The ICAEW Tax Faculty has published a range of guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) which presents their understanding of this policy and how this will work, as well as those areas where clarification is still being sought.
