Hibernian players, senior staff agree to defer percentage of wages

:Headline: Hibernian players, senior staff agree to defer percentage of wages:
The club says employees are deferring wages by between 20 and 50 per cent.

Hibernian’s players and senior staff have agreed to defer a significant percentage of their wages, while the club have furloughed the the majority of their other staff.

The move comes as part of football’s developing response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The club said that individual arrangements remain confidential, but that “employees have agreed to defer salaries by between 20 per cent and 50 per cent.”

“Senior staff and players have agreed to defer a significant percentage of their income”
- Hibernian chief executive Leeann Dempster

Some staff in a core group, comprising ticket office and communications staff, are continuing to work from home.

Chief executive Leeann Dempster said in a statement: “Our main aims through this crisis are to look after our people and our community, and to protect this club for the future.

“We have spoken with staff and our players. They have all been superbly supportive and committed through this whole issue, and we have agreed that we should furlough.

“Senior staff and players have also agreed to defer a significant percentage of their income.

“This will help the club manage its finances through this difficult period. The chairman has said that the club will repay any shortfall in earnings over an agreed period once things return to normal.”

City rivals Hearts furloughed staff earlier in the week and chair Ann Budge provided detail in a statement released on Friday evening:

It read: “I would like to make it clear that no employee, whether furloughed or working, at any level in the club has been asked to take a 50% cut.

“We are also planning to furlough all players and while discussions are still ongoing with the first team squad, we would like to make it clear that since the introduction of the Job Retention Scheme, no player has been asked to take more than a 30% reduction in wage.

“A number of players have already agreed to our proposed terms.  Steven Naismith is standing by his original offer to accept a 50% cut and indeed one of our younger players is refusing to take any wages at all over this period.

“We thank every player for their support and hopefully we will conclude all discussions very soon. ”

An update from Championship side Dundee read: “In the coming days we will be implementing elements of the job retention scheme in respect of our staff and it is our intention that all are looked after fully throughout this crisis.

“This includes our football players, football staff and administrative staff receiving full pay while they are on furlough for the foreseeable future.”
