Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: Letter seeking an employee's agreement to flexible furlough
Author: Stephen Simpson
When to use this model coronavirus/flexible furlough letter
Use this model HR letter to seek the agreement of employees to work reduced hours via a flexible furlough arrangement under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
Note: There are now restrictions on which employees can be furloughed - in particular, the employee must already have been furloughed for at least the minimum furlough period of three weeks before 30 June 2020. This means that the last date on which an employee could be furloughed for the first time was 10 June 2020, although there is an exception to the furlough cut-off date for employees returning from family-related leave. See Warning.
