ARAG produces advisory on next phase of Covid-19 Job Retention Scheme


As expected, further guidance was published on 12 June on the newest development in the successful Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – flexible furloughing. Until now, furloughed workers have been unable to carry out any work for their employers whatsoever. However, from 1 July, employees can move to a flexible furloughing arrangement in which they can work under any part-time arrangement, being paid their normal wage for working hours, whilst employers can still apply for the furlough grant for the remainder of their usual working hours.

This change is largely welcomed by employers, but the downside is the horribly complex calculations attached to the flexible scheme, which may put some employers off utilising it.
