The UK government has provided further clarification on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, including details businesses will need in order to make a claim once the portal goes live. The portal for claims goes live on 20 April..

We will update our FAQs with the further clarifications to the guidance, including:

• confirmation of what should form the basis for furlough pay for employees furloughed on return from (maternity/paternity/shared parental/adoption/sick/parental bereavement) leave;

• confirmation that employees subject to TUPE transfer/ business reorganisation/ payroll consolidation can be furloughed;

• confirmation of the position for contractors in scope of IR35 in the public sector;

• clarification of the circumstances where an employee shouldn’t be furloughed by multiple employers.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has issued a list of the rules that have been temporarily relaxed to make it easier for businesses to continue working through the disruption caused by Coronavirus.
