How are you helping your UK employees who are having their hours cut due to COVID-19 closures?
We are working closely with our teams across the UK to make sure that everybody affected is supported during the lockdown period. All furloughed workers received 100% pay for their salary or contracted hours up until 4th May. After that date any team member who remains on furlough receives 80% of their normal contracted hours or salary and will receive no less than 80% until end of October when the current Government scheme is due to end.
We will review our position again when we have more clarity from the Government on how they plan to exit the country out of lockdown and when we are further through our reopening programme.
