At the end of May, the Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced a number of changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), including the flexibility to bring back furloughed staff part-time from July.
On 12 June 2020, the Government then released further details of these changes, including how to check if you can claim your employee’s wages through the CJRS and how to check which employees you can put on furlough.
From 1 July 2020, you can bring employees back to work for any amount of time and on any shift pattern whilst still being able to claim the CJRS grant for the hours not worked. You will need to pay for any hours the employee does work.
To support you with what these new changes mean and how they could affect your business, our Health & Safety and Employment Law partner Ellis Whittam has produced flexible furlough guidance that answers the key questions about the changes. It covers:
- Minimum furlough periods
- Length of the claim period
- Agreement to flexible furlough
- Flexible furlough claims process
- Claim examples
They also hosted a “Furlough Explained” webinar on 16 June which can be viewed in their Coronavirus Advice Hub.
This hub is completely free to use and is regularly updated, so please register and start using it today. Choose Towergate Risk Management as the Ellis Whittam partner that you’re a member of.
