We hope you are staying safe in these testing times.
The Job Retention Scheme has been announced by the government to support those PAYE workers who have been laid off due to the coronavirus.
Unfortunately as a business we are restricted by the pace in which the government releases the detail. The Directors here at umbrella.co.uk are in talks with our employment lawyers continuously about the Job Retention Scheme as well as liaising with industry bodies like the FCSA & APSCo. See the latest response from the FCSA here.
Rest assured we are hoping to be in a position where those whose assignments are terminated due to Covid 19 are able to be furloughed. However, until we are comfortable with the detail we cannot provide you with confirmation.
Once we have the full detail from the government in terms of how furlough payments can be processed for umbrella employees, we will be back in touch with the information you need.
