AIUI, the employer doesn't pay the employee until they get the grant from HMRC as they may not have the cash due to the cessation of trading.

Is the 80% of salary up to £2,500 gross or net? The employer may not know the actual figure they are getting until they get the Grant from HMRC. I have read that the employer can pay you the difference between the Grant and your actual salary but they are not obliged to.

Also, does the employer still deduct your workplace pension based on your full salary and pay the employee and employer contributions over to the pension provider?
