The Government has extended the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Job Retention Scheme until 30 April 2021. The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme Furlough Leave Agreement ( available here ) and the Flexible Furlough Agreement Letter ( available here ) templates have been updated and are now available to use for the new extended Coronavirus Job Retention (Furlough) Scheme.

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) was due to end on 31 October and be replaced by the Job Support Scheme. However, the Government changed its mind and decided to extend the CJRS instead. The CJRS will run from 1 November until 30 April 2021. Flexible furlough also remains an option for employers.

• Designate affected employees as ‘furloughed workers’, and notify employees of this change; and

• Submit information to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) about the employees that have been furloughed and their earnings through the new online portal.
