Important - Government Updates Furloughed Worker Guidance (from ASBCI Members, Chadwick Lawrence)
In the early hours of 4 April 2020, the Government updated its guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, affecting the rules on furloughing workers.
There are important clarifications/changes to the calculation of pay, the ability to bring ex-employees back, employees who are shielding, taking up a new job during furlough leave, multiple periods of furlough and record-keeping requirements. I have uploaded a video summarising these points here and our revised FAQs are attached with new additions in red font (also available on my LinkedIn page here).
Please review this guidance carefully as this may well affect the furloughing arrangements that you have put/are putting in place.
