Furlough and Annual Leave
Monday April 6, 2020 | 2 min read
We know that in terms of SSP, you cannot receive SSP and furlough at the same time and this is likely because both are government benefits. When an employee returns from sick leave and is fit for work, you can put them on furlough leave then. We know that holiday accrues during furlough leave and that employees/workers can carry over up to 4 weeks holiday in the next 2 years. We also know that Employers can require employees/worker to take holiday during furlough provided that they give twice as much notice as the leave they are required to take.
