As the Covid-19 situation is developing on a daily basis, you should look out for updates on Government financial measures to ensure you access any relevant support which is available to you – whether or not in relation to lay-off and short-time working.

Make UK is in regular contact with Government and is seeking Government support for manufacturers in these challenging times, in particular financial support for wages as a result of lay-offs and short time working, similar to schemes in France and Germany.
In this uncertain time, businesses will be considering how they will be impacted by the disruption to supply chains, drop in demand and/or limited availability of employees even capable of attending work. At the time of writing, no businesses have been asked to shut down by Government but they may nevertheless be facing lay-offs.
