Final Phase of ‘Furlough’ Scheme Announced…


The final phase of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme was announced recently.  The below key dates will be of use to you if you have any staff on furlough, or are considering using the scheme (although you’ll need to be really quick!)

Please remember that you should provide a letter to anyone who is coming back from furlough to confirm that their normal terms and conditions will resume.  If you are bringing someone back part time, the letter should detail what their hours will look like and any next steps.  I can help with this if required.

In addition, please note that the record keeping requirements for the CJRS changed recently – any paperwork relating to claims for furlough pay now need to be kept for 6 years (previously 5 years).

Please get in touch if you would like any further information.  The following sites are also useful:
