Salon opening dates for England & Scotland – no change!
Just to clarify the barrage of misinformation in social media around re-opening dates:
The earliest date salons and barbershops can reopen in England is still 4 July 2020. There has been no other confirmed date.
No reopening date yet from Nicole for Scottish salons/barbershops. Still part of phase 3.
Training – all UK
Staff can come to the salon or barbershop for training before reopening but it must be confined to issues such as health & safety and new policies and procedures. For example, how the salon will work on re-opening, the sanitisation workflow etc.
Furloughed staff can take part in the training, but they must receive their normal full wage for this time training – ie 100% rather than 80%.
And to clarify, they do not have to be de-furloughed for the day – they remain technically furloughed.
And of course, social distancing must remain in place during the training.
