Can furloughed employees return part-time?

Yes. The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CRJS) has made it possible for employers to bring furloughed employees back part-time since 1 July 2020.

Organisations are responsible for paying wages, National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and minimum pension contributions for these employees in line with the hours they work.

The government will continue to pay a proportion of the wage costs for the hours which aren’t worked, up to the existing cap of £2,500, in line with the CJRS.

NOW: Pensions has a good technical infrastructure combined with a pension product suitable for our team. We couldn’t be happier with NOW: Pensions.
