Staff Still On Furlough?

Staff Still On Furlough?

Do you have staff still on furlough? If so, they are part of the 12.5% of UK staff who remain furloughed.

These figures were accurate to mid-August say the Office for National Statistics.

The ONS also found that two-thirds of furloughed staff (67%) were still receiving top-up payments from their employers on top of the 80% contribution from the government.

From 1 August, employers have had to start paying employees’ national insurance and pension contributions while still receiving the 80% subsidy from the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. This month, September, the government’s contribution reduces to 70% of wages, and will reduce further to 60% in October as the scheme closes at the end of October.
