CJRS flexi-furlough timesheet errors

Best practice for reviewing and amending

Didn't find your answer?

I'm preparing our company's September furlough claim and there are various inconsistencies between the user log on our till system and handwritten staff timesheets. They largely agree, but all staff appear to be guilty of rounding down their hours and occasionally missing days altogether.

I've summarised hours on a spreadsheet and adjusted hours to make sure the working hours reported cover the time stamps shown by the tills. Not sure there's much else I can do - I hate having to make any adjustments, I'd prefer to be able to take them as given.

Any suggestions on best practice in these scenarios? Should I report back to staff concerned and get them to sign off on my adjustments?

Your issue is bigger than the CJRS claims.

As regards the CJRS, the relevant hours for the claim are the hours for which you pay them.

The rest is an issue with staff practices that has nothing to do with the scheme. Presumably it hasn't just become an issue so how do you usually work out what to pay them?

They're salaried and topped up to 100%. So we just pay them their normal wages. My issue is making sure I'm aware of all hours worked, so as not to overstate the CJRS claim.

The handwritten timesheets they submitted by and large cover the user log of the till system, with the odd exception I mentioned above. I ought to go back to the staff and point out the discrepancies and agree the correct figures, but it annoys me that such an intervention is required at all on my part.
