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.
Is he still on the employer's books?
Ok thanks. As an agency worker it is still unclear whether he will be covered by the Government’s Job Retention Scheme where 80% of an employee’s pay is covered. However, that is aimed at people who are on a company’s payroll so he may find out that he qualifies and is covered by it. Nevertheless, it is still early days s it is a matter of keeping an eye out on the news to see when further details of the process are announced.
In the meantime, he can consider benefits, although these will depend on his personal circumstances. He can approach JobcentrePlus to see if he qualifies for any.
