The Employment Lawyers Association Covid-19 Working Party has published a paper urging the Government to clarify, as a matter of urgency, the areas of conflict identified within the current versions of the guidance on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS).
Following the recent guidance, a number of questions remain outstanding and new ones have arisen in relation to:
Obtaining adequate consent to vary the employment contract.
Protection against redundancies, dismissals and failure to provide work under zero hours contracts.
