When designing the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, as well as the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme and Job Retention Bonus policies, the Treasury undertook an analysis of how the policies were likely to affect individuals sharing protected characteristics in line with its Public Sector Equality Duties. This is in accordance with the internal procedural requirements and support in place for ensuring that equalities considerations inform decisions taken by ministers.
