As part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government introduced the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

This scheme allows UK employers to furlough, or temporarily lay-off, employees with government support to continue to pay the employees’ salaries and protect these employees from redundancy.

Local authorities can use the scheme in certain specific circumstances. We have more information on the details of applying the scheme and our coronavirus employment law FAQs.

This guide will help local authorities to consider how to manage the wellbeing of their employees who have been furloughed under the scheme.
