On Friday 12 June, HMRC updated their guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to reflect the forthcoming changes to the scheme to allow flexible furlough, which allows employees to be furloughed for part of the time, and to work for part of the time too.

From 1 July 2020, employers can bring furloughed employees back to work for any amount of time and still claim the furlough grant for the difference between the hours they would normally have worked, and the hours actually worked.

From 1 August 2020, the maximum amount which can be claimed under the scheme each month will reduce to reflect the financial contribution employers will have to start making from this date.

To help you navigate these changes and how they’ll work in your business, our Employment Law experts have studied the guidance in-depth and have summarised the key points in this exclusive new guide.
