Furlough letters for the Extended CJRS
Furlough under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) was due to end on 31 October 2020. However, on that day, the Government announced a second lockdown in England and the extension of the CJRS for a month. Then, on 5 November, the Government announced that the CJRS would be extended further, until 31 March 2021, to enable support to be in place for long enough to help businesses recover and get back on their feet – as well as giving them the certainty they need in coming months. We refer to this as the ‘Extended CJRS’.
We have prepared the following template letters for employers to use when seeking employees’ agreement to full or flexible furlough under the Extended CJRS:
- Extended CJRS full furlough letter – to place an employee on full furlough
- Extended CJRS flexible furlough letter – to place an employee on flexible furlough
We have also prepared template letters for employers to use to recall employees from full or flexible furlough under the Extended CJRS:
- Return from full furlough under the Extended CJRS letter – to recall an employee on full furlough to return to their normal working hours
- Return from flexible furlough under the Extended CJRS letter – to recall an employee on flexible furlough to return to their normal working hours
