Further Developments to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) Furlough

By June 11, 2020Uncategorized

After the announcements at the end of May 2020,  lobbyists have been successful in bringing about the following amendments which were agreed on the 9th June:


  1. There will be no minimum furlough period from 1 July 2020. However, any furlough arrangement agreed between employer and employee reported in a claim to HMRC must still cover a period of at least a week


  1. From 1 July 2020 employers can only claim from the CJRS in respect of employees who were furloughed on or before 10 June 2020, with the exception of those who are returning to work following a long period ofstatutory family leave.
