The Latest on Furlough Leave
The deadline for putting an employee on furlough leave has now passed.
So, unless an employee is:
- currently furloughed
- has previously been furloughed
- is returning from Statutory Maternity or Paternity Leave
you will now not be able to put them on furlough leave.
Flexible furloughing will be introduced on 1 July 2020.
This means that employers will be able to furlough employees for part of their normal working hours rather than having to furlough them for all of their hours.
On top of this, the minimum period that an employee can be furloughed will be reduced from 3 weeks to 1 week.
The government has said that further guidance on flexible furloughing and how employers should calculate claims will be published on 12 June 2020.
