Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme Update -
From 1 July, employers can bring back to work employees that have previously been furloughed for any amount of time and any shift pattern, while still being able to claim the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme grant for their normal hours not worked. When claiming the grant for furloughed hours employers will need to report and claim for a minimum period of a week. Further guidance on flexible furloughing and how employers should calculate claims has been published.

Travel guidance for employees -
To support businesses with employees returning to work from Monday 15th June, the Department for Transport has developed resources for employers.

The above sets out some steps employers can take to help provide a safe return to work for employees on the transport network, including encouraging active travel and travel outside peak hours.

New support for high streets -
The High Streets Task Force has announced new training, expert advice and online resources for high streets in England today. The High Streets Task Force will provide access to cutting-edge tools, training, information and advice for high streets across England as part of the government's efforts to get shops back in business safely from 15 June.

This support is open to local councils and all organisations involved with high streets and will include free access to online training programmes, webinars, data and intelligence on topics including recovery planning and coordination, public space and place marketing.

Re-opening places of worship -
From Saturday 13 June 2020 places of worship will be permitted to open for individual prayer. Please follow the latest guidance available, which includes information on Covid-19 risk assessments that should be carried out prior to re-opening.
