Jersey Employers: do not get side tracked by the United Kingdom’s reference to furlough

Jersey Employers: do not get side tracked by the United Kingdom’s reference to furlough. Jersey has its own unique and distinct co-funding scheme.
In the UK where an employee has been furloughed, you cannot ask your employee to do any work that makes money for your organisation or provide services for your organisation. They are mothballed. In Jersey, the aim is, as far as possible, that employees in certain sectors should be kept in employment that is as similar as practicable to the situation they were pre-Covid-19. They can still work.
Jersey is so much more pragmatic.
