Flexible Furlough Scheme Update

A Coronavirus Job Retention scheme update was announced on 29th May and we have been eagerly awaiting the detail of the new Flexible Furlough Scheme which was posted on the Government website last night (12th June).

Under the Flexible Furlough Scheme (FFS), to support the ease of the lock-down, the employee no longer needs to avoid doing any work for the employer but can work some of the week and be furloughed for the rest, in proportions decided between the employer and employee.   The most significant change is that the minimum three week period for furlough has been removed (as of 1 July 2020).  There is no minimum period, although any claim through the CJRS portal must be in respect of a minimum one week period (ie employers can only put in four claims a month, not 31).

The way the information was released was by making changes to most of the existing guidance, and by issuing three new pieces of guidance.  To make things nice and simple for you we have collated the information into a helpful download guide.

What the new guidance covers:

  • changes to the scheme and key dates that you need to be aware of
  • how you can claim if you bring previously furloughed employees back to work part-time from 1‌‌ July (known as flexible furloughing) and how many employees you can claim for in any one claim
  • how to claim, and the information you’ll need to do so
  • how to work out how much you can claim
  • more information on amending your claim.

If you have any immediate or urgent issues get in touch with us to discuss your options in these tough and uncertain times.
