Many employers faced with the prospect of having to close their businesses for a period of time welcomed the Government’s announcement of their Job Retention Scheme [JRS] which will provide the opportunity for most employees to receive 80% of their pay whilst they cannot work and would otherwise have to be made redundant.
However, the JRS guidelines make it clear that in applying the scheme, employers are expected to follow employment legislation requirements.
If employers do not follow these requirements, then they could find themselves facing expensive employment claims in the future. If you are in any doubt, then you should consult with an employment law specialist.
