The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has produced new guidance on the marquee schemes announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak.

Covering both the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the Coronavirus Self-employment Income Support Scheme, as well as including a lengthy FAQ and decision tree, this guidance will be invaluable to any business considering furloughing staff or making substantive changes to see through the weeks and months ahead.

Chair of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) Andy Mitchell commented: “This resource will be invaluable to any company operating along the construction supply chain. These schemes are fundamental to protecting jobs and the future of the construction sector. Therefore we hope that this guidance will inform and encourage more to take up these unprecedented offers of support from the Government.”

Commenting on its release, Hannah Vickers, chief executive of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) said: “We will all have to work together if we are to emerge unscathed from this crisis. Sharing this guidance is just one way we are helping the whole industry rise to the challenges we’re currently facing.”

This version supersedes any previously released advice or FAQ by ACE.
