The Coronavirus Flexible Furlough Scheme


The chancellor Rishi Sunak has now announced the scheme details for the Flexible Furlough Scheme.  The revised scheme was announced a couple of weeks ago and the final details were released on 12th June 2020.

The New Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) is known as the Flexible Furlough scheme as it is just that, flexible.  The existing scheme has worked well at helping to secure jobs which otherwise would have been lost in lockdown, when businesses had to close.

Now as things start to get back to normal, slowly to whatever the “New normal” is, you are able to take advantage of bringing your workers back part-time.  So if you can only keep your workforce in work for two days a week lets say then, under the rules of the new scheme, you pay them for two days and if they were working a 5 day week, the government will pay the 3 days they are on furlough.

This should help businesses who are not yet fully operational but do have the need to bring their workers back in to get ready for the return to “normal working” whatever and whenever that is.

Of course if you have a pub, restaurant, beauty salon or hairdressers salon and are still not able to open yet, you can of course, still take advantage of keeping your staff on full time furlough.  The payments you receive from the government do start to reduce though from August.
