To be eligible for the Job Retention Scheme employers must confirm in writing to their employee that they have been furloughed. A record of this communication must be kept for five years.

ACAS has recently released a brief update on resources available to help employers during the Coronavirus pandemic which includes the provision of a furlough letter template and access to ACAS webinars.
