Harbour Healthcare

Furlough Scheme

June 2020

The Corona Job Retention Scheme (Furlough) will be closed to new entrants from 30 June.  From this date onwards, employers will only be able to furlough employees who have already been furloughed for a full three-week period prior to 30 June. In practical terms, this means that the final date by which employers can furlough any individual employee for the first time will be 10 June (so that three-week minimum period can be completed by 30th), It is critical that employers consider now whether they will need to furlough any more staff, so they do not miss the closing date.

Harbour Healthcare is currently furloughing the following employees:

  • Those who are Shielding – in receipt of the official Shielding letter
  • Those who live with someone who is shielding
  • Those who have Caring responsibilities
  • Those who we need to shield for business reasons i.e. we have no work for at this present moment
  • Those who are caring for a vulnerable person in their household
  • Over 70’s
  • Pregnant Staff

If you believe that you should be furloughed, then please contact your Home Manager today.
