Furlough Latest - Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: Update

Can I furlough a newly TUPE'd employee? Can I furlough someone who is off sick?

These were just some of the questions answered in the latest HMRC guidance, published just before the Easter weekend.

In brief:

  • Yes, you can furlough a newly TUPE'd employee even if they transferred after 28 February 2020.
  • Yes, you can furlough from sick leave (and vice versa).
  • No, you cannot furlough an employee and simultaneously re-hire them through an associated company.
