JSS Closed Grant is 2/3rds of "Normal Pay"

JSS Closed Grant is 2/3rds of "Normal Pay"

Where employees are paid at least 2/3rds of their normal pay for hours not worked the Government will pay a grant of 2/3rds of their normal pay subject to a maximum of £2,083.33 a month. The employer will be responsible for paying national insurance and pension costs in respect of the employee.

When the business premises reopen employers will be able to claim the JSS Open grant towards the employee’s wages for hours not worked provided the employee works at least 20% of their usual hours.

The employee cannot be made redundant or put on notice of redundancy during the period during which the employer is claiming the grant.
