MLP Law

At the beginning of May further guidance was published for employers in respect of the CJRS.

Employee Representatives

Whilst on furlough, employees who are union or non-union representatives may undertake duties and activities for the purpose of individual or collective representation of employees or other workers. This clarifies that it is not a breach of furlough to accompany a colleague during disciplinary or grievance meetings, or redundancy consultation.

Directors paid in Dividends can Furlough

The guidance also outlined that directors who pay themselves once a year (typically one-person businesses where most revenue is taken as dividends) are, subject to certain conditions, eligible for furlough.
