Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme
What you need to do from July
We recently emailed to inform you on the changes the chancellor had made to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: part time furloughing, employer contributions and key dates to remember.
This information can be found on our website and on the government website.
Here is a reminder of what you need to do to prepare if you haven't already done so, key points to note and what will be changing from July.
- Consider which employees you want to keep on full-time furlough and which employees will come back to work. You will need to decide on what hours and agree arrangements with them as needed for your business.
- Flexible furloughing for employees will begin from 1st July 2020. You can decide the hours and shift patterns they work to suit the needs of your business. You'll pay their wages for the time they're in work and can apply for a job retention scheme grant to cover any of their usual hours they are still furloughed for.
- The 31st July is the last date claims can be made for periods ending on or before 30th June 2020.
