I have a client using Flexible Furlough and the original Furlough Scheme variable hours staff throughout July (they are weekly paid).
As the original Scheme was calculated on days rather than hours I do not currently have the hours computed for those on the original furlough for the weeks they were on this first scheme, who went onto flexible furlough part way through the month. I only have the hours calculated for the Flexible Furlough period.
I have logged on to make the whole claim for July, and the questions it asks are:
-What are their usual hours worked,
-what are the actual hours worked.
At first I thought I would be simply imputting the hours I have calculated under the period they were on flexible furlough in the month, but now I am wondering is it expecting me to calculate the hours they would have worked in the whole of the month, even though under the original Furlough scheme, this was based on days.
If this is the case, for variable hours weekly paid employees, it will mean doing even more calculations and I just feel it is a conflict, based on what we have been told to do, in order to make this claim. I can't stagger the claim, as some employees were on FF at the start of the month, some in the middle, so there is no clear cut in the period.
Can anyone confirm or advise me on this, as it is my first Flexible Furlough claim online.
