Employers are targeting women more than men to ‘furlough fraud’.
“This scheme is a lifeline for millions of locked-down workers.”
Employees threatened with dismissal if they were not to continue working after being furloughed.
Eligible businesses are those on PAYE payroll scheme and have fewer than 250 employees.
Only 3.8 per cent of those eligible couples took SPL in 2018/19.
The scheme has been extended to the 19 March from the 28 February.
“The flexible workforce, who the Government claims to support, is being penalised.”
“The Government remains committed to reintroducing this policy.”
For at least six months to a year.
23 per cent plan to quit contracting due to IR35.
How will the UK react on the 6th April?
The first 12 months of the enforcement of IR35 will not be “heavy handed”.
“I’ve been freelance for 28 years and that’s been okay. Now it’s not.”
People have criticised the Chancellor’s words and said just delay IR35.
The legislation forces businesses to “reassess employee bases and business structures”.
