Part 2 – Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

Posted on: March 23rd, 2020 by Ginny Hallam

To access the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, you’ll need to designate affected employees as ‘furloughed workers’. HMRC will reimburse 80% of the wage cost of furloughed workers, up to a cap of £2500 per month.

This is a new and unprecedented situation, so to support you in managing and communicating this information to affected employees, we’ve created a number of documents and are providing specific advice to guide you through.

  • Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme questions and answers – £250+VAT (click here to access)
  • Template letter informing affected employees of their new status as a furloughed worker – £250+VAT (click here to access)
  • 10% discount on our hourly fee rate for Intelligent Employment clients

More information on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and furloughed workers can be found here.

Fee transparency 

We’re committed to supporting you throughout these difficult times and where possible have delivered guidance, updates and advice free of charge. Given the unprecedented and developing situation, we’re working around the clock to continue to provide solutions and support, meaning it’s necessary for us to charge for the templates / advice set out above.

Extended credit terms 

To provide as much flexibility as possible for you, we’ve extended our usual credit terms for the Q&A document, template letter and related advice to 30 days. If payment is still a challenge, please let us know.
