I don't know if anyone can assist me.  I am currently on furlough and informed my employer that I would return on 21st June 2021.  However, I have been offered a new job which I will be accepting and want to know how the furlough scheme would work with me resigning and also having 21 days annual leave left.  I have to give 4 weeks notice and wonder if I would take 1 week as furlough and 3 weeks as annual leave, is this correct?

How many days a week are you contracted to work? How do they calculate leave?

 

21 days annual leave is 3 weeks if your annual leave is done in weeks or you are contracted for 7 days a week.

 

It is over 4 weeks if your annual leave is calculated in days and you are contracted for 5 days a week…

Thank you for responding.   

 

I am contracted to work 37.5 days a week, 5 days Monday - Friday.  For some reason my annual leave is calculated in hours instead of days.  My initial entitlement is 25 days per year, which is 187.50 (for a 7.5 hour day). So the amount I have left is 157.50.

Which is 21 days, calculated by days of 7.5 hours / day,

 

Which is 4 weeks and 1 day of annual leave, calculated by hours / (days of  7.5 hours) / (weeks of 37.5 hours / week [and of 5 days / week])
 

I’d suggest giving them 4 weeks notice on Friday 21st May, noting that you are currently on furlough but are owed 157 1/2 hours annual leave.

 

Your post notes “My initial entitlement is 25 days per year, which is 187.5” (hours) “for a 7.5 hour day”.

 

This is less than the mandated minimum of 5.6 weeks (28 days) : is there an adjustment for Bank holidays (& is this the reason you mentioned “initial entitlement”)?

Sorry yes there is an adjustment for bank holdays.

 

Thank you very much for your advice here.  I really appreciate it.

you can't be furloughed while on notice. A change in the scheme means employer's can't reclaim notice pay. Also your notice pay should be at 100% of wages.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

I was planning to give 4 weeks notice and have 1 week furlough and take the rest of my annual leave at 100% pay.

Well, if your employer knows furlough rules, they can't do that and legally claim the week under CJRS.
