Q1 – QUERY ON ARNWP

WE HAVE AN EMPLOYEE WHO COVERED HOLIDAYS IN JAN/FEB SO THEIR ARNWP IS HIGHER THAN REQUIRED TO WORK AS THEY ARE HOURLY AND HE HAS GONE BACK TO NORMAL HOURS.
WE DO NOT WISH TO PAY THE ARNWP TIER 1, AS IT IS HIGHER THAN THE NORMAL WORKING HOURS, CAN I PAY THE LOWER AMOUNT AND CLAIM THE 85% AS IT IS A LOW LEVEL EMPLOYEE?

Q2 ? HOURLY EMPLOYEE WORKING MORE HOURS
WE OPERATE HOURLY PAY FOR OUR EMPLOYEES ? AS THEY WORKED THE BANK HOLIDAY THEY ARE ENTITLED TO HIGHER PAY NEXT WEEK, HOW CAN I PAY THE HIGHER GROSS PAY TO COVER THE BANK HOLIDAY WHEN THE ARNWP IS LOWER AS THERE WAS NO BANK HOLIDAY IN THAT PERIOD?

Q3 ? HOURLY STAFF ? ARE THE SUGGESTING THAT HOURLY STAFF ARE NOT ALLOWED WORK MORE HOURS THAN THEIR AVERAGE IN JAN & FEB 2020? AS IF THEY DO IT REDUCES THE SUBSIDY?

Q4 ? STAFF MEMBER BY THEIR CHOICE REDUCED THE NUMBER OF WORKING DAYS ? IN JAN/FEB THEY WANTED TO WORK 5 DAYS ? THEY THEN REQUESTED TO ONLY WORK 3 DAYS ? SO THEIR ARNWP IS HIGHER THAN THE DAYS CURRENTLY WORKED BY THE EMPLOYEES CHOICE ? HOW DO I MANAGE THAT?

In relation to Q1 you can claim the subsidy and not top it up, or claim a part of the subsidy to match the salary you need to pay.

Q2 if you top up over the max employer top up it will reduce the subsidy with tapering, So it’s either a. Tell the employees? they’re not getting paid the full amount (HR issue there) or b. The employer gets a lower subsidy.

Q3 As above if more than the max weekly top up is paid the subsidy is tapered.

Q4 As Q1 you can pay the subsidy and not top it up or reduce the amount of subsidy claimed to match the amount you want to pay the employee
