Organisations can furlough staff part-time from tomorrow, 1 July 2020. The Treasury Direction released on Friday states that a written agreement must be in place with the employee before they are “flexibly-furloughed”. Agreements were required with full-time furloughed employees, but you will need to vary the terms or ask employees to sign a new agreement to furlough someone part-time. Do give me a call or send me an email if you would like a flexible furlough agreement.
