For enquiries relating to Furlough or your specific site being closed, please contact your Regional Manager. They will be able to answer you queries about the process and the sites.
Will I be paid even if the site I work at is closed?
This is a site-specific question. Some customers are closing and will honour the contract, others will need the staff to be furloughed whilst some may have to close their business. Please speak to your Regional Manager.
What does Furlough mean?
Furlough leave means businesses can keep employees on the payroll without them working. As furloughed staff are kept on the payroll, this means they aren’t being laid off without pay or being made redundant. This is designed to support businesses who are affected by COVID-19.
The government have agreed that businesses can apply for a grant that covers 80% of the employees usual monthly wage.
If this affects you, you will be informed by your Regional Manager and notified in writing. Please remember, this does not mean you have been dismissed and additionally you are required to continue to make yourself available for work should the need arise.
Will I be paid if I am self-isolating?
Emergency legislation put in place requires Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) to be paid to anyone self-isolating in order to prevent the infection or spread of the virus providing they meet the criteria for SSP.
Where the first day of absence was 13 March 2020 or later, SSP is payable from day one for anyone self-isolating.
You will need to obtain medical evidence from NHS 111 rather than the GP. This is called “Isolation notes”. You will be expected to be provide this as evidence to you Regional Manager.
The notes can be accessed through the NHS website and NHS 111. The note will be emailed to you, or in some cases, directly to the company.
Will I be paid SSP even if i don’t normally get it?
Anyone whose first day of sick leave due to COVID-19 was 13th March 2020 or later gets SSP from day one of the absence. But they still have to qualify by earning at least an average of £118 per week (up until the 5th April 2020) and £120 per week from 6th April 2020.
Will I have to use my holiday if the site I work at is closed?
No. If staff are unable to take their full annual leave entitlement by the end of the leave year, they can carry it over the next two leave years. Please discuss with your Regional Manager.
