We were warned years ago that a pandemic was on the horizon, and we needed to prepare, but why did those warnings go largely ignored by governments worldwide?
As the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (Scheme) winds down we consider what employers are required to pay to redundant furloughed employees.
The Government has published further details of the Job Retention Bonus which will be payable to employers who employ furloughed employees until at least 31 January 2021.
This is BDBF’s guide to how the second phase of the COVID-19 Job Retention Scheme (Scheme) will operate between 1 July 2020 and 31 October 2020.
Back in May 2020 the Government published COVID-19 secure guidelines setting out the health and safety measures to be adopted in different types of workplaces. In this briefing, we highlight the latest core objectives for office-based employers contained in the updated Guidelines published on 23 July 2020.
