What does HR need to know when bringing staff back?

From July 1, 2020, ‘flexible furlough’ came into play, allowing employers to bring staff members back to work part-time if they wanted to.

Gov.uk stated that furloughed staff members can be brought back to work for any amount of time or shift pattern and are still able to claim the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) grant for the hours not worked.
