With the introduction of the lockdown, more and more businesses are considering selling goods and services at a distance. Whilst this is a good way of dealing with the restrictions placed upon business due to Coronavirus, it is important to ensure that businesses fully understand their obligations, the risks being undertaken and how to minimise them.
Advice note – furlough and redundancy
Although the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (“CJRS”) currently offers a short-term alternative to redundancies, when it comes to an end there is no doubt that many organisations will have no alternative but to make some of their workforce redundant. This raises the question of how the redundancy consultation obligations run alongside this period of furlough. This advice note deals with a redundancy situation involving less than 20 employees being made redundant at any one ‘establishment’ (e.g. at any one site) within a 90-day period. Please see our separate advice note on collective consultation obligations for a redundancy situation involving 20 or more employees at any one ‘establishment’.

Furthermore, as we are not medical professionals, we cannot provide any medical advice on the virus, its treatment or transmission. This guidance is current for 30 April 2020.
