Professor Alan Bogg and Professor Michael Ford QC

Professors Bogg and Ford QC produced their paper in conjunction with the webinars on 22 April and 4 May for the Society which looked at the recent ‘unprecedented’ establishment of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme announced on 20 March and now set out in a Treasury direction.

The webinars discussed matters such as how the Scheme works, its interaction and overlap with existing employment rights; the problems of applying it to atypical workers, such as agency workers; issues for pregnant women; the use of trust and confidence and other arguments to compel employers to ‘furlough’; and the vexed question of rights to annual leave and furlough.
