The Job Retention Scheme - Pensions & Benefits Issues

15 April 2020

The Government guidance on furloughed workers has now been published and employers are asking how they can keep paying their people when the work is drying-up. Government funding is available for employers who are facing this challenge, but how does it function in practice and what does it mean for DB & DC pensions? How does this also affect automatic enrolment, consultation and the difficult issues around providing other benefits during furlough leave?

In this webinar, Gowling WLG's Pensions/Combined HR Solutions team answer pensions & benefits questions about the Job Retention Scheme. By the end, listeners will be able to brief the Board, engage with Trustees, and provide their members and the Pensions Regulator with clear reasoned input at this difficult time.
