International travel rules in England have now changed (from 4 October), with the removal of the amber list and a single red list. Northern Ireland are also changing their traffic light system from early October, with countries classified as red and non-red. Scotland and Wales will also move to a simpler travel list system but will still require travellers to take PCR tests. We have updated our content to reflect these changes. More information is available in our FAQ: What do employers need to know about the overseas travel rules replacing the traffic light system from October 2021?
The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (the furlough scheme) has now ended. We have updated our content to reflect this. Further information on options available to employers is available in our post-furlough guide and in the After furlough FAQs.
