The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme is Changing - A reminder for any charities furloughing staff that the scheme will close to new entrants this Wednesday 10 June.

How it 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 30 June. From this point onwards, employers will only be able to furlough employees that they have furloughed for a full 3 week period prior to 30 June.This means that the final date by which an employer needs to agree with their employee and ensure they place them on furlough is 10 June.
