As part of the Plan for Jobs, the Chancellor announced the introduction of the Job Retention Bonus. We have published further information on the JRB, which can be found here.

 

The policy paper confirms the eligibility criteria for the JRB, including:

 

  • Which employers can claim the JRB (including clarifying the eligibility of employers that have employees who have been transferred under TUPE or due to a change in ownership);

 

  • Which employees an eligible employer can claim the JRB for (including clarifying eligibility for employees returning from statutory parental leave, for military reservists and employees who are on fixed term contracts);

 

  • What employers should do now if they intend to claim the Job Retention Bonus.

 

Full guidance, including on how employers will be able to claim the JRB, will be available by the end of September.
