A collection of updates, guidance and support documents to help you, help your clients.


 

Employers who are or will be furloughing employees need to consider if they need to take action before 10 June 2020.

 

  • Employees to be furloughed for first time need to be furloughed for a minimum of 3 weeks and start furlough by 10 June, if employers wish to claim Government Support under the CJRS. If not, then furlough claims cannot be made for these employees after 1 July.

  • Employers looking to re-furlough any employees for June may need to do so prior to 10 June for a minimum of 3 weeks if they wish to claim Government Support through CJRS.

  • From 1 July, the maximum number of employees on one claim under CJRS can be no more than maximum number on claims prior to 30 June.
