COVID 19 UPDATE – Furlough scheme – 9th APRIL 2020

April 9, 2020

Two matters to update on the furlough scheme.

  1. It has been confirmed that staff who TUPE transferred after 28th February 2020 can be furloughed by the transferee.
  2. Staff who are on holiday do not qualify for furlough pay and should be paid by the employer their full pay whilst on holiday. This is important as most staff will be off both on Good Friday & Bank Holiday Monday and should be paid full pay.
