CJRS: Making Employees Redundant While on Furlough

    View Author July 2020

    On Friday, HMRC issued some further tweaks to its guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS). The key change for employers to be aware of is the new wording about making employees redundant during furlough and, in particular, the fact it now says employers can only claim “for a furloughed employee who is serving a statutory notice period”. Unfortunately, as so often appears to be the case with updates to the guidance, rather than making things clearer when it would have been so easy to do so, these changes only raise further questions.
