A charity I am involved with furloughed an employee for the first time on the 10th. I stated as clearly as possible by letter, email, and phone that when the chair contacted the employee to explain the rules, the most important one is that no work is to be done during furlough. I even added and underlined it in the furlough letter they had to sign before I could place them on furlough.
I have received feedback that the employee wants to (and probably will) "volunteer" to complete some small tasks that, if they were not on furlough, they would normally be paid for. It is challenging to police this as I work remotely, and they normally work unsupervised outside office hours. The intention of furloughing now was to enable us to take advantage of the part time option due to the ongoing but reduced requirement for their role.
How do you recommend I proceed?
