Employment partner Jonathan Rennie recently spoke at a webinar hosted by Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow
The coronavirus Job Retention Scheme and the concept of furloughing staff is a new one and has been necessary due to the unpreceded situation we find ourselves in as a result of Covid-19. Furthermore, the government has produced a number of iterations of its guidance, compounding the complexities of the Scheme and the rules surrounding it.
This webinar is designed to provide you with a basic understanding of the Scheme and its guidelines. It includes advice on the intention of the Scheme itself, who it is designed for, how to calculate employee wages and guidance for employers and employees. It also provides advice on more technical points to consider, including covering options short of redundancy as well as redundancy itself. The contents of this webinar are accurate at the time of recording [24 April 2020].
