The word ‘furlough’ has been used many times in the news as of late, mostly as a verb. People may know someone who has been ‘furloughed’ or put on the furlough system; this is something new that has been brought in to support employees and businesses through the Corona Virus pandemic. The Government will pay employers 80% of their employees’ salaries, of up to £2,500 a month, to those who have been affected by the cautionary actions the virus has brought on. This starts from March 2020, and although the Government is issuing it for three months there is an understanding this may need to be extended for longer depending on circumstances.
