To help support our users and the SME business community at large, we are running a series of webinars bringing together the subject matter experts to address today’s critical issues.

Recently, we ran a webinar on with HR Director Tracey Hudson (of The HR Dept) and Parental Choice CEO Sarah-Jane Butler, who presented and answered questions about furlough and holiday carryover.

Note: this webinar was recorded before the UK government announced that the eligibility cut-off date for Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme extended to 19 March 2020, so some of the dates referenced may now be out of date.

Webinar agenda

In this joint webinar with HR Dept and Parental Choice, we covered:

A guide to furlough

Furlough is a word that's on every business leader's lips. With government guidance just published, we have invited HR specialist and business owner Tracey Hudson of the HR Dept to walk us through how this much anticipated scheme will work.

Tracey will guide attendees through the furlough process from an employer's perspective and be there to answer your questions. We look forward to hearing her expertise on the matter!

Holiday carry over changes

The UK government have recently announced that workers who are unable to take annual leave due to the COVID-19 coronavirus will be able to carry over statutory holidays for up to two years.

How will this affect your business? Sarah-Jane Butler, CEO of Parental Choice, will offer insight into the very latest changes to annual leave regulations.
