The increase in Coronavirus cases is headline news around the world, and there are genuine concerns around how to deal with its impact on UK workplaces.

It is especially difficult as an employer to know how to support your employees and your business. You ultimately have five options:

  • Short-time working
  • Layoffs
  • Furloughed workers
  • Redundancies
  • Winging it!

We have put together a document which details what each of these options mean and answers common questions you may have.

We especially go into detail surrounding the Job Retention Scheme which was announced on 20th March. We answer what ‘furloughing’ an employee means, who is eligible and how you apply for the 80% grant from the Government.

To understand the different options you have as an employer and help you come to a decision, download your copy by completing the form below.

As always, we are here to support you. It’s now more important than ever to not rush into anything. If you need any advice on how to manage and support your employees and how to come to a decision, contact our HR Specialist Donna Bygrave on 01474 853 856 or email Donna.Bygrave@A4G-LLP.co.uk.
