Furloughing your workers is the best way for you to keep their jobs safe during this period of closure for pubs.
The BII has been working closely with our expert partners at Bhayani Law throughout this crisis to make sure our members have all that they need to save their businesses, protect their staff and have all the tools required to relaunch their pubs once they are able to open.
This template letter has been created especially for the BII, but we would like to share it at no cost so that anyone who needs help with accessing the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, can do so.
We have recognised from the very beginning, the need to support, not just our members, but the whole hospitality industry in every way we possibly can. All information regarding Coronavirus on www.bii.org is freely available to everyone and we are pleased to make this template another part of that toolkit of measures available.
Jay and her whole team at Bhayani Law have been supporting our members through our helplines and whilst this template gives you the basics to furlough your staff, we always recommend getting the professional advice and guidance available to you via our member helpline.
Jay has also provided further information via her website which we have already given to members via our INNfocus newsletter this morning, but would recommend you use her advice here in conjunction with the template.
