We have had multiple requests for furlough template letters and redundancy template letters since publishing our earlier articles on furloughing staff and other options to reduce wage costs while coronavirus measures remain in place.
We have developed template furlough letters and these are available to myHRdept retained clients without charge, we would also like to offer these to non retained or new clients who need to furlough staff or carry out redundancies due to coronavirus.
It is not as simple as sending furlough template letters however as although there are only broadly two types of letter (depending on the employment contract terms of the recipient) each letter has a number of variables and a furlough template letter may not always be the most appropriate route.
As a result we are very happy to offer an affordable package to any employer who wants to make use of it. Our package, which costs £100 + vat includes:
- Up to 20 minutes consultation with one of our experienced consultants
- A customised furlough or redundancy letter by email following that call
- 10 minutes follow up consultation if it is required (e.g. things take an unexpected turn & you need further advice.)
This service is on a first come first served basis and is subject to our collecting payment in full prior to the consultation taking place. We always give priority to our retained clients, but we will not take payment from you unless we can service the initial call and template within 12 working hours of your paying for the service – normally we will be able to respond much more quickly.
We hope this is a useful service given the circumstances all employers find themselves in. To make use of this service please email firstname.lastname@example.org including the term ‘SERVICE 100’ in the title bar and don’t forget to include a telephone number we can contact you on to collect payment & discuss the options.
