Jarmans Solicitors can help with Furlough and related employment matters

The Government’s Covid-19 Employee RetentionScheme (furlough) is due to end on 30th September 2021 in line with the reopening of the country from Covid-19 restrictions. As a result, some employers are finding themselves increasingly having to consider a number of employment law dilemmas. Jarmans Solicitors is here to help and advise business owners on a variety of different topics including bringing staff back from furlough, redundancies during furlough, and their legal obligations to staff who are furloughed.

Current Furlough timeline

1st July – 31st July 2021 – The Government will pay 70% of the salaries/wages of furloughed staff, employers pay 10%.

·1st August – 30th September 2021 – The Government will pay 60% of the salaries/wages of furloughed staff, employers pay 20%.

1st September 2021 onwards – No further Employee Retention Scheme payments will be made, and employers will be responsible for all salaries/wages.

For businesses that have had staff furloughed for the majority of the lockdowns, this could raise worries that you may have to begin a redundancy process for employees who you can no-longer afford. This could be because your company’s size has reduced, or you may have pivoted your business’ operations and have now found that some staff roles are now obsolete.

In other cases, you may have staff who are returning to different positions and job roles, which will require renewed and updated employment contracts.

As with any employment law issues, we would always recommend consulting with an experienced employment solicitor before making any decisions. Seeking legal advice can ensure that any redundancy or redeployment processes you undertake are fair and that you avoid potential employment tribunals in the future.

Jarmans Solicitors have an excellent team of employment solicitors who can advise and represent businesses of all sizes in any employment related matters. To make an appointment simply fill in the enquiry form.

You may also be weighing up the idea of renegotiating contracts with various staff members, again we recommend speaking to a specialist employment solicitor before consulting with staff members.
