REMINDER: CJRS SCHEME CLOSING 30 SEPTEMBER 2021
The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) is due to end on 30th September 2021. After this date the Government will no longer make contributions towards employee’s wages.
Employers should therefore start to prepare for the scheme ending and make plans to either:-
· bring employees back to work on their agreed terms and conditions
· terminate their employment (normal redundancy rules apply to furloughed employees)
· agree with employees any changes to terms and conditions of employment (rules for contractual changes apply to furloughed employees)
Please note that when making decisions about how and when to end furlough arrangements, equality and discrimination laws will apply in the usual way.
Please also note that this post is generic in nature therefore always seek specific professional advice. Farrell & Farrell do not accept any liability for any direct or indirect loss arising from reliance placed herein.
