Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS)
Due to the closure of our leisure sites, a number of employees were placed on Furlough Leave under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS). The continued co-operation of our employees to agree to Furlough Leave has mitigated the need for redundancies at this critical time for our organisation.
Extension of the scheme
The CJRS was originally scheduled to finish at the end of June, however the scheme has now been extended until the end of October. There will now be at least two phases:
Until 31 July 2020 employees on Furlough Leave will continue to receive 80% of their current salary, up to a maximum of £2,500. From 1 August 2020 to 31 October 2020 the scheme will become more flexible and employees may be able to work part-time during this phase. Further details will be published by the end of May and we will update you again at that point. Employees currently on Furlough Leave will therefore continue participating in the CJRS until at least 31 July 2020 unless they are required to return to work (or they request to leave the scheme).
If you are currently on Furlough Leave, it is important that you do not do any work for us. However, we may ask you to undertake training during this period. Please note that all employees are required to obtain our written consent before working for any other organisation. Please contact HR on HR@malhotragroup.co.uk if you require permission in this regard.
Participants of the CJRS will remain employed throughout their period of Furlough Leave and their continuity of employment will not be affected. Annual leave will also continue to accrue in the normal way, however any holidays accumulated during this period must be used during Furlough Leave and will be processed in line with Government guidance.
We also encourage any employees on Furlough Leave to keep in touch with colleagues via any methods of informal communication, such as use of Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp or social media groups, so that we can all continue to support each other at this difficult time.
Your welfare and safety are paramount at this time so please follow all government guidance in relation to Covid-19/Coronavirus.
