Furlough claims changes: The government has been paying the wages of more than nine million furloughed workers as part of the coronavirus job retention scheme during the pandemic. Rishi Sunak announced that the scheme would be coming to an end on October 31, with changes coming in each month until then to wind it down.
The changes will mean little for employees, who will continue to receive 80 per cent of their wages, up to £2,500 a month, until the scheme ends.
But from August, employers will need to start making a contribution. For the month of August the Government will continue to pay 80% of employees’ regular pay for hours that they are furloughed but will no longer pay the associated employer NICs and pension costs. The government support then reduces to 70% in September and 60% in October. Contact us if you need help with your claims.
