When your employees are on furlough

You cannot ask your employee to do any work that:

  • makes money for your organisation or any organisation linked or associated with your organisation
  • provides services for your organisation or any organisation linked or associated with your organisation.

Your employee can:

  • **take part in training**
  • volunteer for another employer or organisation

Registered Training Providers. We are more and more getting operatives in for refresher training OR after being trained by unregistered companies who are issuing their own cards which are being declined at a later stage after their competence as training providers has been questioned. Not only is this ‘bad practice’ but it leaves the operatives out of pocket with no qualification.  Please see HSE ACoP 117 for proof of ‘competent trainers’. If your trainer cannot provide their ‘instructor competence’ then you could very well end up out of pocket with a worthless certificate of training.
