The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (Furlough Scheme) is currently due to end on October 31st 2020, and organizations should start thinking now, about what happens next.
As the timing and nature on the relaxation of restrictions is uncertain at present, it would be sensible for businesses to consider all the options and have the capability to move quickly from one scenario to another.
Employers will need to have a strategy plan put in place to safeguard the health and well-being of staff, as certain restrictions and social distancing measures will be likely to continue for quite some time.
In the short term, employers should look at the following areas:
• Managing returning to the workplace
• Dealing with redundancies and related issues once the furlough scheme ends
• Managing holidays, sickness and other absences
We have put together a handbook to address all of these areas and more, you can download yours for free by clicking the photo below.
