Further Extension of the Furlough Scheme - How we can help!


The government has recently announced a further extension to the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, confirming that the scheme will now run until the end of March 2021.


John Mehtam who leads the employment team at Martin Kaye states that under this scheme it is imperative that employers have written agreements in place documenting the terms of the furlough arrangements. 


In most cases, the previous arrangements will have been assumed to end on 31 October 2020 or amended to cover the initial 4 week extension up to 2 December 2020, so new agreements should be put in place as a matter of priority to reflect the latest extension.


If you require comprehensive guidance on the furlough scheme and would like us to produce bespoke furlough agreements for you or if you would just like some advice and assistance during these unprecedented times then please do not hesitate to contact our Employment Team at or on 01952 566920 and we will provide you with a no-obligation fixed fee quote.
