GGF calls for greater flexibility of job retention scheme

  • 9 Jun 2020

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) recently wrote to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, requesting that the Job Retention Scheme was made more flexible to help companies who may only require furloughed workers to return on a part-time basis.

John Agnew, GGF MD, commented: “Following discussions with GGF Members, we contacted the Chancellor to ask if the Job Retention Scheme could be made more flexible and allow companies to re-employ furloughed employees on a part-time basis, until work picks up and there is enough for full time employment.

“It is important this flexibility happens as soon as possible, to ensure companies don’t lose skilled and experienced employees.”

Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced the Job Retention Scheme would be extended to October and that there would be flexibility from July for companies to re-employ part-time whilst employees were still furloughed.
