Flexible furlough – secure it in writing

Posted on: June 22nd, 2020 by Ginny Hallam

If you’re planning to make use of the new ‘flexible furlough’ rules from 1 July, government guidance requires you to write to those affected employees confirming this is the case.

We’ve created a straight-talking, user-friendly template letter for you to provide to those affected. Our template:

  1. Helps you explain why you still need to utilise the Job Retention Scheme
  2. Secures in writing the necessary detail to allow you to claim reimbursement under the new rules
  3. Provides a comprehensive 16 point FAQ to clearly explain the new status to employees, your expectations and their obligations during their period of flexible furlough
  4. Explains how their new status affects their employment rights, pay and benefits, holiday and more, helping to reduce the number of employee queries you’ll receive
