Furlough leave

The introduction of a new Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (Furlough leave) was announced by the government on 20 March 2020. Under the scheme, all UK employers, regardless of size or sector, can claim a grant from HMRC to cover 80% of the wages costs of employees who are not working but kept on the payroll (“furloughed”), of up to £2,500 a calendar month for each employee.

Can you put employees on long-term sick leave on furlough leave?

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, guidance suggests that employees who are on sick leave or self-isolating should receive statutory sick pay (SSP) but can be furloughed once they have recovered or are no longer self-isolating.

Can employees who are shielding be placed on furlough?

Yes, if they are in a role that has been identified as otherwise at risk of redundancy due to a decline in volume of work or closure of a workplace then they should be placed on furlough.

Can an employee request to be onto furlough leave?

Yes, an employee can request this, but the Company does not have to agree. It is the Company’s decision which employees to place on furlough leave, if any.

Will workers continue to accrue holiday during furlough leave?

Yes, annual leave continues to accrue during furlough. The new regulations allow for up to 4 weeks statutory leave to be carried over for 2 years.  If you are unable to take all your annual leave in the current holiday year, you can request for leave to be carried over into the next holiday year and will have 2 years in which to take the leave.  If you carry over statutory leave, you will not be eligible to apply for the Buy More Holiday scheme.

Are employees permitted to take pre-arranged annual leave during furlough?

Clancy have decided to cancel any annual leave already pre-booked for those who have been furloughed and will add these days back to your annual holiday entitlement.

Can staff still work for Clancy or another employer while furloughed?

You cannot continue to work for Clancy while furloughed. While furloughed an employment relationship still exists, so you should not be working for anyone else during those contracted hours.

However, you may be able to work for another employer as long as it does not breach contractual obligations. We may consider relaxing any such restrictions to allow employees to take up a role with a non-competing business with prior consent.

If at the weekend you want to volunteer or work somewhere else like in a grocery store, that would be fine as long as it is outside your ‘normal hours’. But when you go back to work, you have to make sure the working time regulations aren’t being breached, you oblige by your contractual hours and that you’re getting enough rest.

Can employees on furlough leave do volunteer work?

Yes, assuming that the volunteering in question is not for The Clancy Group Limited.

Can employees on furlough leave undertake training?

Yes, assuming that the training is not used to generate revenue for the Clancy Group Ltd. We are seeking further clarification on what training is allowable and will update you shortly.

What will I get paid on furlough?

You will be paid up to the lower of 80% of your usual monthly wage costs capped at £2,500 per month, plus the minimum auto-enrolment employer pension contributions.  The 80% calculation is based on the employee’s gross salary at 28 February 2020, unless you receive variable pay.

How is the 80% calculated for those with variable pay?

Your salary will be calculated using the average gross monthly earnings from the 2019-20 tax year.

If you have been employed for less than a year, we will use an average of your monthly earnings since you started work. If you started employment in February 2020, your earnings so far will be pro-rated.

Who will pay me during furlough?

Clancy will continue to pay you via BACS on your normal weekly or monthly pay day.

Is £2,500 the net amount I will receive or is it subject to tax and NI?

The sum paid during furlough leave is subject to the income tax and national insurance in the usual way.

How is salary calculated for employees who are on or have been on sick leave and SSP?

Employees who are on sick leave and in receipt of SSP cannot be furloughed until their sick leave comes to an end. If an employee who has variable earnings has been in receipt of SSP, we will use the averaging of earnings from the 2019/20 tax year.

What happens to my childcare voucher deductions during furlough? Can I suspend them?

You can log in to your Busy Bees account and amend your salary deductions and also freeze or amend any outgoing payments to your childcare provision https://busybeesbenefits.com/

What happens to the Cycle to Work repayments? Can I freeze them for the period I am furloughed?

Please contact HRAdmin@theclancygroup.co.uk should you wish to do this.  We do not yet know whether this is possible.

I want to return my Company Car whilst I am furloughed – is this possible?

Yes, this may be possible.  Please contact HRAdmin@theclancygroup.co.uk for further information.

I bought additional annual leave through the Annual Leave Purchase Scheme – can I freeze these payments or cancel them?

Please contact HRAdmin@theclancygroup.co.uk  should you wish to do this.
