Tricia Walker and Sam Jones discuss the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme with particular focus on the practicalities of placing employees on furlough leave and what the latest Government guidelines mean for employers.

They also expand on discussions in previous webinar sessions, and consider particular scenarios involving furlough leave. The discussed scenarios are fictional, but based on questions which the team are being asked and help to explain the practicalities of furlough leave.

Scenarios include:

  • Consent
  • Clarification of what 80% of an employee’s wage means
  • Who can be furloughed
  • TUPE
  • Topping up pay
  • Annual leave
  • Sick leave/pay
  • Salary reductions
  • Furlough selection
  • Redundancy
  • Pensions
  • Medical suspension
