Extension to Furlough scheme

The Chancellor has announced today (12th May 2020) that the Government’s Furlough scheme – whereby employees may be paid up to 80% of their salary if they have to stay at home because of the Corona virus – will be extended by 4 months to October.

There will be some amendments to the scheme during September and October – more details to be announced later.

However, there is still no help for people caught “between jobs”, nor for those who technically are not employed.
