The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (the ‘furlough scheme’) ended on 30 September 2021.
What happens next?
The furlough scheme supported many organisations through the Coronavirus pandemic. Now that it has finished, employers need to make the difficult decision on whether they can bring back workers onto their full hours, or if redundancies need to be made.
This is never an easy decision, and no one would wish to make redundancies. However, done in the right way, with a Christlike care for those involved in the process, it can sometimes be the right option for an organisation.
Our Redundancy Pack has been crafted to help churches and Christian organisations follow a fair but personal process honouring both their legal obligations and the people affected. It contains a wealth of information and guidance to help you, whether it is one person in a unique role at risk of redundancy or you are having to make a selection from a group.
