Coronavirus Update: Ending Date Change

The major change is that the ENDING date for the Furlough Scheme is extended until October 31

Between August 1 and October 31 employers can begin bringing staff back part time.

Employers wishing to return staff to work should consider the following:

  1. Can work be done from home?
    • This is the preferred option and should remain in place.
  2. Have rules of social distancing been applied and in place?
    • If not, the return is not safe and should not take place.
      • The definition of social distancing will depend on each case, business, location, transport and work station.
  3. Does the employee have any objection to returning?
    • Any objections should be considered as to whether the objection can be mitigated or minimised.
