#coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – Key Dates #COVID19

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme is changing:

From 1 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 30th June 2020. From this point onwards, employers will only be able to furlough employees that they have furloughed for a full 3 week period prior to 30th June 2020 unless they are returning from extended maternity, adoption or shared parental leave.

This means that the final date by which an employer needs to agree with their employee and ensure they place them on furlough is 10th June 2020. Employers will have until 31st July 2020 to make any claims in respect of the period to 30th June 2020.

Further guidance on flexible furloughing and how employers should calculate claims will be published on 12th June 2020.
