Can an employee still do volunteer work when on Flexible Furlough?

An employee on Flexible Furlough can take part in volunteer work during hours which you record your employee as being on Flexible Furlough as long as it is for another employer or organisation.

To be clear, if on Flexible Furlough and you’re claiming the grant for them, then they cannot work for you.

As people work part-time and ease back into the business, this is likely going to be a key risk area. You need very clear lines as to working time and non-working time. No replying to emails on days off.
