Changes to the furlough scheme from 1 July

  1. 1. Key changes to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme from 1 July 6 The COVID-19 crisis is rapidly evolving and the government's response and the details of support on offer are continuously changing. We'll be updating our posts regularly to ensure our analysis and advice remains as accurate and useful as possible.
  2. 2. 1 To qualify for a flexible furlough claim, employees must have been furloughed previously, for a minimum of 21 consecutive days, between 1 March and 30 June 2020.
  3. 3. 2 You can only claim for the highest number of employees that were in any one claim before 30 June 2020.
  4. 4. A new agreement must be issued to employees that are part of the flexible furlough scheme. They can be brought back to work for any amount of time and in any pattern, and employers can still claim for the hours not worked. 3
  5. 5. 4 Employers can’t ask employees to do any work that makes money or provides services for the employer organisation during the hours the employee is furloughed.
  6. 6. 5 Claims must start and end within the same calendar month and claim periods can’t be shorter than a week. Any claim which runs across June and July must be split into two, to cover the June days and the July days of the furlough period.
  7. 7. 6Employees can work and be furloughed in the same pay period. For this, the employer will need to work out the employee’s usual hours, the actual hours they work, and their furloughed hours for each claim period. There are two different calculations an employer can use to work out usual hours depending on whether they normally work fixed or variable hours.
