Employers wishing to place employees on furlough for the first time, need to discuss, agree and place them on furlough for a full three-week period from tomorrow the 10th of June.

As recently outlined by the chancellor, from the 1st of July, employers can bring back to work employees that have previously been furloughed for any amount of time and any shift pattern, while still being able to claim the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme grant for their normal hours not worked. When claiming the grant for furloughed hours employers will need to report and claim for a minimum period of a week.

The scheme will close to new entrants from the 30th of June, which means that if an employee is not furloughed by the 10th of June, they will be ineligible for the scheme going forward. Employers have until the 31st of July to make any claims in respect of the period to the 30th of June.

Further guidance on flexible furloughing and how employers should calculate claims will be published on the 12th of June.
