The latest features to help your clients pay and manage staff through Covid-19
New furlough and updated statutory sick pay functionality in Xero Payroll means your clients can pay their staff during these challenging times, in line with recent government legislation.
Record furloughed staff: The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme helps employers to pay their employees at least 80 percent of their regular wages up to £2500, even if the business is unable to operate. This means staff are kept on your payroll, but as furloughed employees.
Changes to statutory sick pay: We’ve added ‘COVID-19 self isolation‘ as a sick leave option for employees who are required to self-isolate, so they can earn sick pay from day one instead of the usual four consecutive days.
