Didn't find your answer?

An employee not previously furloughed has now been told to self isolate from today 10th june as someone in the household has covid – should he be on put on ssp or furlough?

If he is put on ssp and then unable to come back to work after 14 days  can he then be put on furlough?

Per the guidance:
"Employees who are unable to work because they are shielding in line with public health guidance (or need to stay home with someone who is shielding) can be furloughed....
...Furloughed employee retain their statutory rights, including their right to Statutory Sick Pay. This means that furloughed employees who become ill must be paid at least Statutory Sick Pay. It is up to employers to decide whether to move these employees onto Statutory Sick Pay or to keep them on furlough, at their furloughed rate.

If a furloughed employee who becomes sick is moved onto SSP, employers can no longer claim for the furloughed salary. Employers are required to pay SSP themselves, although may qualify for a rebate for up to 2 weeks of SSP. If employers keep the sick furloughed employee on the furloughed rate, they remain eligible to claim for these costs through the furloughed scheme."

No because today is the last day to put on furlough and qualify for CJRS.
