Information about wages and pay
Coronavirus Job Retention scheme
We are currently working through the details of the coronavirus job retention scheme. We are identifying how we can apply for this government funding. We are also putting systems in place to administer it.
As soon as we know more, we will share the information in the daily staff update and on this web page. We hope to have more detail by early April.
Self employed workers
If you are self-employed, and if you filled in a tax return last year, HMRC will send you details of the new self-employed income support scheme. This will take some time to organise. You will not be able to apply until they get in touch.
In the meantime, you can apply for a business continuity loan, and you should apply for Universal Credit.
Your independent contractor will tell you their processes. Please contact them if you have any questions:
If you are self-isolating
People on a PAYE contract should apply for statutory sick pay (SSP) if you’re self-isolating because you or your household have symptoms.
If you have questions about receiving your holiday pay, please contact your VGC labour manager.
To book holiday, please use our annual leave request form.
Please keep taking care not to spread the virus.
You can carry and share the virus even if you don’t have symptoms. The faster it spreads, the more people will die.
- Wash your hands thoroughly and often with soap and water. Soap breaks down the virus and is the best way to kill it.
- Stay two metres (six feet) away from other people at all times.
