The Government have today announced that the coronavirus job retention scheme has been extended to 30th June 2020 – see here. The reason for this announcement today could well be that large businesses who may have been contemplating making 100 or more redundancies within a period of 90 days would otherwise may have started collective consultation imminently in order to tie in with what was going to be the end of the Furlough Scheme (31st May 2020).
