consider which employees you want to keep on full-time furlough and which employees will come back to work – on what hours – to agree arrangements with them as needed for your business.
What you need to do from July
start your flexible furloughing of employees from 1 July onwards. You can decide the hours and shift patterns they work to suit the needs of your business – you’ll pay their wages for the time they’re in work and can apply for a job retention scheme grant to cover any of their usual hours they are still furloughed for. You can still keep employees on full furlough if you need to
claim for periods ending on or before 30 June, by 31 July – this is the last date you can make those claims
claim for further furlough periods as needed – the first time you will be able to make a claim for days in July will be 1 July.
