Nine new laws and amendments come into force next week.


The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme expires on 31 October.

A number of new laws and financial changes will come into force nationwide in November.

Here are the laws that will come into effect and how they might affect you

The universal credit for the self-employed will be changed and public sector exit payments will be limited.

But that is not the only thing that is changing this month, BirminghamLive reports.

It will be replaced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s new job support program for those who cannot return to work by November 1.

Thousands of people could see their income from universal credit cut by hundreds of pounds a month if a change comes into effect on November 13.

Here are all the new laws and how they might affect you.

Due to Covid-19 it has been suspended for eight months, but this suspension will end on November 13.

The big change, called the Minimum Income Floor (MIF), limits how much self-employed people can receive benefits.

What did you miss most during the suspension periods?

The suspension officially ends on Halloween this year, when the government replaces the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

But it expired this month before its peak on October 31.

After Chancellor Rishi Sunak unveiled the program at the height of the pandemic, it provided financial support to workers across the country.

Additional aid worth billions has been announced for companies and workers affected by the restrictions on corona viruses.

Mr. Sunak has instead chosen to replace it with a corona virus job promotion program – which, as many critics have pointed out, offers far less support.
