Furlough Payments (COVID-19)


Knowledge Base / Legal Advice / Furlough Payments (COVID-19)

Each employer making furlough payments claims will only have one opportunity to make claims each month– there will be no going back at a later date to add in any missed payments for previous weeks. There is only one opportunity to claim.

Therefore, if you have to claim furlough and have not advised us of this yet please do so before the end of the month – after this date we will not be able to make any claims that relate to weeks prior to this date. We will be sending out an email to all contractors advising of a deadline for sending information to us. If you have already advised us of this, we will have your details on file. Should you return to work, please let us know.

Following the government guidelines, the minimum length an employee can furloughed for is 3 weeks, therefore our payments for furlough will be monthly.

Please note that that any furlough payment will be 80% of your payment from Charteris Management.

To be eligible for the subsidy, when on furlough an employee cannot undertake work for or on behalf of the organisation. This includes providing services or generating revenue. While on furlough, the employees’ wages will be subject to usual income tax and other deductions. This scheme is only for employees on agency contracts who are not working. If an employee is working, but on reduced hours or for reduced pay, they will not be eligible for this scheme.
