Coronavirus and Furlough of Employees

‘Furlough’ is temporary leave for workers and employees while a business is temporarily not operating. During furlough employees and workers must get their usual pay in full for any holidays they take. The UK government has introduced a temporary new law allowing employees and workers to carry forward up to 4 weeks’ paid holiday over a 2 year period. More information and a template furlough agreement letter is available via ACAS website: www.acs.org.luk/coronavirus.
