  • Parents returning to work after long-term leave allowed to be furloughed

The government previously announced that to enable the introduction of part-time furloughing, and support those already furloughed back to work, claims from July onwards will be restricted to employers now using the scheme and previously furloughed employees.

"The government has not provided a road map for businesses, so how can employers be expected to make a decision tomorrow (Wednesday) on whether to furlough more workers, so that they are eligible for the new Flexible Furlough scheme which starts from 1 July".

1 October 2020: employers must contribute 20% towards the pay of furloughed employees.

"The CJRS has been vital for the protection of jobs and a lifeline for many businesses, offering an alternative for employers who might have otherwise implemented redundancies, lay-offs or unpaid leave for their employees - ensuring they have a steady income - while also giving companies a degree of stability".

"The overall cost to the Government could have been marginal, compared to employers now rushing to unnecessarily place some workers on furlough".

Today is the last chance estate agency owners have to furlough retained staff before the scheme closes to new entrants on July 1.

From this point onward, estate agencies will only be able to add staff to the scheme if they have been furloughed for a full three week period before 30 June and will have to make any claims before 31 July. The survey comes as companies prepare to start amending, or indeed significantly winding down, their involvement with the government's furlough scheme, which covers pays 80 percent of nearly nine million workers' wages.

"Many businesses are still uncertain of the future".

However, and while on-trade businesses and trade bodies including UK Hospitality and the Wine & Spirit Trade Association have broadly welcomed the flexibility that the updated scheme will offer, the 10 July cut off is set against many unknowns, including a lack of clarity from government over several aspects of how and by what increments hospitality can reopen.
