Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long have the employees worked for the business?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. It is certainly possible for the employer to look into redundancies at the end of the furlough period. The Gov’t scheme is there to help employers retain employees in the short term, whilst they are affected by the current crisis. However, it is not a guarantee that all jobs covered by the scheme will be saved in the long-run and in the end the employer may still face the need to cut down its workforce, which would result in redundancies. The good news is that you still have a job and some income for the time being but do not assume that this guarantees your role once the furlough is over.
