If you are considering placing employees on furlough during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, our expert employment solicitors have prepared a Furlough Pack for employers containing templates of all the documents you will need to ensure you comply with the relevant legal and contractual considerations.
The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) provides grants worth 80 per cent of a furloughed employee’s salary up to £2,500 a month, plus Employers’ National Insurance Contributions (NICS) and minimum employer auto-enrolment pension contributions.
Furloughed workers are those who remain on the payroll but who do not carry out any work for their employer during the period of furlough.
It is important to get things right when you furlough employees in order to be able to claim a grant under CJRS, both to ensure your claim is successful and to reduce the chances of an employment dispute.
Our Furlough Pack for employers contains the key template documents you will need in order to make the best use of the Government support available under the CJRS and to protect your business during the crisis.
The pack includes:
- Furlough leave agreement
- Factsheet for employees
- Factsheet for employers
- Furlough flowchart
- Letter extending furlough
- Letter giving notice to return from furlough
- Letter advising of risk of redundancy following end of scheme/other reasons
The Furlough Pack for employers is available for £300 plus VAT.
We are also offering a one-hour fixed-fee coronavirus advisory service for employers for a limited time only for £160+VAT.
