Part-Time Furlough Tracking

Part-Time Furlough Tracking

How are you tracking your set employee hours to ensure they don’t exceed your Furlough agreement?

Since July 2020, Businesses have had the flexibility to bring furloughed employees back to work part-time. The amount of flexibility has to be agreed by you and the employee, then 80% of their wages* can be claimed for through HMRC.

So let’s say, due to new lockdown and teir rules, you can bring a quatre of your staff back for 2 days per week.

Their regular weekly hours need to be calculated and divided by the new flexible workdays.

Ensuring your employees don’t go over this work amount per week, meaning you owe the employee more money – or the government scheme overpays – is your responsibility.

How, therefore, in the days of social distancing and making sure not to overspend on labour do you do this? Paying a manager to simply ensure workers are doing their allotted time is overkill.

You need an employee time and attendance system

uAttend by Chronologic makes tracking employee hours a piece of cake. Thanks to our cloud-based system, you don’t need to install or invest in any infrastructure.

Just download our app, or allow employees to log on via their computers, and you’re good to go.

uAttend not only collects employee hours but can calculate a host of reports – including payroll – automatically.

Do I really need it, though?

With HMRC demanding your furlough details to be stored for at least 6 years for tax purposes – uAttend can help.

Being cloud-based, you get real-time accessibility and know that your data is secure.

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been extended until 30 April 2021, if it is not extended again, so the need for tracking hours will continue.

If you’re worried about contracts and payments – don’t be. uAttend has no minimum contract, you can cancel at any time.

Subscriptions start from just £17.99 per month to track up to 9 employees.

*80% of wages only if the employee is paid under the maximum wage amount.
