The government scheme designed to protect jobs during the coronavirus pandemic changes dramatically starting Tuesday, September 1.
So far, the government has paid 80 percent of the salary of anyone asked not to work during the outbreak.
But as of today, companies will have to start paying at least 10 percent of the salaries of their furloughed employees.
This comes after a change last month when companies were forced to start paying National Insurance contributions and pensions.
A government spokesperson said: “Effective 1 September, the government will pay 70% of wages up to a maximum of £ 2,187.50 for the employee’s hours on vacation.
“Employers will raise employees’ wages to ensure they are 80% (up to £ 2,500). The ceilings are proportional to inactivity hours.
Unless you are submitting a new claim to a military reserve employee or returning from legal parental leave, you cannot continue the claim through the system unless:
- You previously vacationed for an employee for 3 consecutive weeks between March 1 and June 30
- You submitted your claim before July 31. “
The scheme will change again within one month.
From October, the government will pay 60% of wages up to a maximum of £ 1,875 for the hours an employee spends on vacation.
Employers will pay Independent Recruitment Companies (ER), pension contributions and employee pay increases to ensure they get 80% of their wages up to a maximum of £ 2,500, for the time they are vacationed.
