Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme - Flexible Furlough

The revised scheme allows furloughed workers to work part-time, known as flexible furlough. This was expected to start on 1 August but was brought forward to 1 July, in recognition of employer support for partial furlough. Employers will of course need to pay their employees at their usual rate of pay for the days worked (and the employer NICs and pension contributions on that pay) and the remaining days will be paid under the scheme.

To qualify for flexible furlough:

  • Employees must be on a payroll on 19 March 2020
  • Employees must have been previously furloughed for at least 3 weeks
  • There is no requirement for them to be on furlough on 30 June 2020

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme - Bonus For Employers

In the Chancellors Summer Statement, he confirmed that the government is introducing a new Coronavirus Job Retention bonus to reward and incentivise employers who continue to employ their furloughed employees through to the end of January 2021.

The bonus would be:

  • A one-off payment of £1,000
  • To UK employers
  • For every furloughed employee who remains continuously employed through to 31 January 2021.

 Employees must earn above the National Insurance lower earnings limit of £520 per month on average between 31 October 2020 when the CJRS ends and the end of January 2021.

The bonus payments will be made from February 2021.
