The sections which discuss the other types of employees that claims can be submitted for have been updated to confirm that contractors who are in scope of the off-payroll working rules, who are engaged with either the public sector, or a medium-sized organisation or large-sized organisation in the private sector, can be claimed for under the CJRS.

Additionally, some amendments have been made to the guidance for those individuals classed as being clinically vulnerable, and for when employees are self-isolating, or on sick leave.
