Furlough, Notice Periods and Guidance Under Extended CJRS

17 Nov 2020

From 1 December 2020, employers will no longer be able to claim under the Extended Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (Extended CJRS) if an employee is under notice of termination. This change appears, along with a number of other changes, in the new Treasury Direction and in further updates to the Government guidance that were issued on 13 November.

Though it confirms that the Extended CJRS will run from 1 November 2020 to 31 March 2021, the new Treasury Direction will only apply in its current form until 31 January 2021, when the operation of the Extended CJRS is due to be reviewed.
