As you will be aware, from 1st July there is no longer a 3 week minimum furlough period requirement. We have staff members who are being furloughed on a rota basis, i.e. working for 3 weeks then being furloughed for 2 weeks. This is to spread the workload fairly among the team and avoid having to bring more staff back on flexible furlough which sounds great in theory but in practice is rather complex.
Furlough periods in Fourth are still set up to be 3 weeks long as a minimum. When I try to set a furlough period for less than 3 weeks, the system won't allow it and I get an error message saying the furlough period must last at least 3 consecutive weeks.
Please can you advise on or devise a solution to this? I want to keep track of furlough status on the staff member's Fourth profile, but the functionality as it is will not allow that.
