Furloughed staff and Subbies working

Furloughed staff and Subbies working

Didn't find your answer?

Hi,

A small construction company has 5 employed staff on the tools supplemented by subbies. 

whilst the employed staff have been furloughed the subcontractors are being used to carry out the limited work currently available.

This is on the basis that the Subbies are generally more senior and can operate self sufficiently.

This seems sensible to me and within the rules but it has crossed my mind that the Subbies may be getting paid as well as self employment grants as well as staff being funded on furlough.

Is the employer ok to claim furlough under these circumstances?

Yes, whether the subcontractors get the grant is none of the company's business.

Some individuals are exempt, from what I heard, at the weekend.

Are they not introducing rules that if your first name starts with a D you can do what you like when you like, I thought that was a great idea.

I'm beginning to think that Boris believes that Dominic is the second "Cummings" and he can walk on water?

Someone needs to shove his head beneath the water and hold it there until he stops flailing.

If you want a laugh google Paddy McGuiness and Barnard Castle.
