Furlough

The Chancellor has extended the Coronavirus Job Retention scheme until March 2021 and given guidance on how it will work.


If you can't maintain your current workforce because your business has been severely affected by coronavirus (COVID-19), you can furlough employees. This is to safeguard employees from being made redundant.

Using the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme you can apply for a grant that covers 80% of an employee's monthly wage costs, up to £2,500 a month.
