EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

The Employment Rights Act 1996 (Coronavirus, Calculation of a Week’s Pay) Regulations 2020 (“the principal Regulations”) set out how a week’s pay is to be calculated in the case of an employee who has been furloughed under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (“the CJRS”), for the purposes of calculating:

a)

any statutory remuneration for time off to look for employment or arrange training;

b)

any statutory notice payment;

c)

any statutory sum resulting from a failure to provide a written statement of reasons for dismissal;

d)

any statutory sum resulting from a failure to comply with an order for reinstatement or re-engagement;

e)

any statutory compensation for unfair dismissal; and

f)

any statutory redundancy payment,

to which in each case they are entitled. They also set out how a week’s pay is to be calculated for the purpose of deciding whether an employee is taken to be on short-time for statutory purposes.

The CJRS was extended by the Coronavirus Act 2020 Functions of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme) Direction, given by the Treasury under sections 71 and 76 of the Coronavirus Act 2020 on 13th November 2020. These Regulations make amendments to the principal Regulations consequent on the extension of the CJRS.

Copies of that Direction can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/treasury-direction-made-under-sections-71-and-76-of-the-coronavirus-act-2020. Hard copies are available for inspection, free of charge, at the offices of HMRC at 10 South Colonnade, Canary Wharf, London E14 4PH.

No impact assessment has been prepared for these Regulations.
