New law for furloughed workers and redundancy pay

New laws coming into force today will ensure furloughed workers receive statutory redundancy pay based on their normal wages rather than a reduced furlough rate.

This legislation will protect workers and ensure that all furloughed employees who are being made redundant receive their full entitlement, providing some reassurance during this challenging time.

These changes will also apply to Statutory Notice Pay, which is where employees must be given a notice period before their employment ends, varying from at least one week’s notice up to 12 weeks’ notice, depending on how long they have worked for their employer. During this notice period, employees must be paid.  Other changes coming into force will ensure basic awards for unfair dismissal cases are based on full pay rather than the reduced furlough pay.
