AN urgent reminder that today (June 10) the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme closes to employees who have not been furloughed for a full three-week period ending on or before that date.
This means that today, 10th June, is the last day on which an employee who has not been previously furloughed can start a period of furlough and qualify for their wages to be covered by the CJRS.
From 1st July there are a number of other changes to the CJRS, including the ability to have flexible return to work. Guidance on these changes will be published in a few days’ time, and we will make you aware of those changes shortly.
For now, just be aware of today’s deadline. Nobody who has not been furloughed by today will be able to qualify for future payments under the scheme.
