The furlough scheme (Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme) will run until 30 September 2021. Employers will pay staff on furlough 80% of their usual wages up to £2,500 per month – or more if that's been agreed with the employee or worker. The employer can claim for wages through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS).What happens if an employee is put on furlough for more than one job?
If an employee is put on furlough for more than one job, they'll be eligible for financial support through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme for each job. Any new furlough arrangements should be agreed between the employer and the employee or worker, and be put in writing.Can a furlough employee claim back their SSP?
You can claim back from both the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the SSP rebate scheme for the same employee but not for the same period of time. When an employee is on furlough, you can only reclaim expenditure through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, and not the SSP rebate scheme.Why is the flexible furlough scheme so important?
The ability to bring our staff out of furlough in a flexible manner will be enormously beneficial as the industry eases out of lockdown. Without this flexibility we would really struggle to cope as we endeavour to grow turnover back to something approaching normal levels whilst trying to keep a lid on short-term costs.
