The Flexible Furlough Scheme (FFS) commenced today, July 1, 2020, and you can now submit claims for periods starting on or after 1 July. GOV.UK published a news story this afternoon announcing this commencement.
The Government Guidance for the new Flexible Furlough Scheme (FFS) was released on 12 June. Accessibility to the new Guidance is not the most straightforward as the information is spread across the existing CJRS Guidance and three new pieces of Guidance. The Government has also produced a summary overview of the key changes to the CJRS and the timetable for the same.
From 1 July 2020, there will be a new flexible furlough scheme where furloughed employees will be able to return to work on a part-time basis. Full guidance has yet to be issued (proposed for 12 June 2020) but present Guidance has advised that only employees who started furlough on or before 10 June 2020 will be eligible for the new scheme.
