Deadline to furlough staff for the first time is expiring

The terms of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (“CJRS”) alter with effect from 1 July 2020.

It follows that, with the agreement of the staff member (as this is a condition of the CJRS reimbursement), staff must have been furloughed for the first time by 10 June 2020.
