What Must I Pay A Laid-Off Employee?

1 February 2011

After the recent economic downturn, employers in the woodworking and joinery industry may still be finding they do not have enough work for their employees, but would prefer to lay-off staff rather than start a compulsory redundancy programme. If you do choose to lay-off an employee, then they will be entitled to £21.20 per day (£22.20 from 1 February 2011) in statutory guarantee pay from the employer, for a maximum of five workless days in any three month period (giving a maximum guarantee payment of £106, or £111 from 1 February 2011) .
