Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: Letter withdrawing a redundancy notice
Author: Stephen Simpson
When to use this model coronavirus (COVID-19) redundancy letter
Use this model HR letter to ask an employee to agree to the withdrawal of a notice of redundancy, following the Government's announcement of increased financial support for employers through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
Note: On 15 April 2020, the Government amended its guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. An employee who was on the payroll on 28 February 2020 but has since been made redundant, or their employment has ended in some other way, can be rehired and placed on furlough. This is the case even if they are rehired after 19 March 2020 - see Warning below.
