COVID-19 Bulletin: Flexible Furlough Scheme
From 1 July 2020, the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will be extended to allow employers to bring staff back to work on a part-time basis while maintaining their furloughed status and using the HMRC grant to top-up wages for the remainder of their normal working hours. This new arrangement will be called flexible furlough.

If you would like any more advice on the Scheme, including how to apply the new flexibility to your workforce, or are at the point of needing to consider asking staff to agree to short- or long-term changes to their working arrangements or making redundancies, please get in touch with a member of our specialist employment team firstname.lastname@example.org.
