Covid-19 – Staff Questions – Our Answers 
(The answers to the questions below are what we understand the position to be at present : should this change or more information become available we will update the answers where necessary) 
 
Q: Can I get part time work to make up my 20% where I have been furloughed? 
A: HMRC guidance says that you can be put on furlough by one employer and continue to work for another – but in accordance with the terms and conditions of your employment you may need to agree any additional employment with your line manager https://www.gov.uk/guidance/check-if-you-could-be-covered-by-the-coronavirus-job-retention-scheme 
 
Q: Do staff accrue A/L while on furlough - e.g. if staff are furloughed for 3 months - will they get 75% of their A/L entitlement this year? 
A: Leave will accrue for the whole period. We will consider sympathetically requests to carry forward leave from this year to the next where it is not possible to use all leave. 
 
Q: Will payslips be posted out 
A: We will post payslips out where possible 
 
Q: Will casual staff doing regular work be paid the 80% 
A: Casuals who qualify under the terms of the Governments job retention scheme will get 80% of the higher of either what they earned in the equivalent pay period last year or their average for either the year (or if they haven’t worked that long the average so far this year) 
 
Q: Will we also be paid on 20th off each month? Or will we be getting paid at the end of the month? 
A: We are changing the pay date to the end of the Month from May. You will be paid in April on the 20th 
 
Q: When we do return will we still receive 12 months annual leave? Or will it be adjusted to 9 months? (As an example if we are off for 3 months) 
A: Leave will accrue for the whole period. Leave will not be adjusted 
 
Q: Will the holiday pay from 2019-2020 which would be due in next months wages be affected ? 
A: If hours owed not already claimed, will be rolled over to claim when we re-open. 
 
Q: In terms of the intricacies of furlough if it is going to impact my other job by being furloughed on 2 different employers. If it does not affect my other income then I do not mind. 
A: This will not affect your other job. You can be furloughed in one job and still work the other. 
 
Q: How does this affect maternity pay? 
A: Maternity Pay will continue as normal. 
 
Q: With holiday already taken in these months we are on furlough. Do we get given them back when we return? 
A: Yes - these will be added back unless someone wishes to take them. You can though opt to take them and be paid at your 100% rate for these days. 
 
Q I am presuming that contracted staff are not expected in 
A You presume correct. All staff are not to come in to work as the facilities are closed. This remains in place unless you are contacted and informed otherwise. We will be sending letters out to all staff just as soon as we can with details of everything you need to know. 
 
Q Will there be any monetary reimbursement for casual employees over the next few weeks that we are closed? 
A We will be writing to staff in the next week (posted to home address) setting out what we will be doing. It is our intention to maximise the support that has been announced by the government and apply the provisions as much as we can. 
 
Q I was wondering if trilogy has applied for the workers retention scheme by the government 
A We will be writing to staff in the next week (posted to home address) setting out what we will be doing. It is our intention to maximise the support that has been announced by the government and apply the provisions as much as we can. 
 
Q Just checking in. I've read the latest updates. Do we need to log in anywhere else specific? 
A The web page is the place to log into to keep informed. We will be writing to staff in the next week (posted to home address) setting out what we will be doing. It is our intention to maximise the support that has been announced by the government and apply the provisions as much as we can.
