Furlough Scheme Extended until October

13/05/2020
The Chancellor has announced that the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme will remain open until the end of October.
Furloughed workers across UK will continue to receive 80% of their current salary, up to £2,500 with new flexibility being introduced from August to get employees back to work and boost the economy.

From the start of August, furloughed workers will be able to return to work part-time with employers being asked to pay a percentage towards the salaries of their furloughed staff.

The employer payments will substitute the contribution the government is currently making, ensuring that staff continue to receive 80% of their salary, up to £2,500 a month.

The government will explore ways through which furloughed workers who wish to do additional training or learn new skills are supported during this period. It will also continue to work closely with the Devolved Administrations to ensure the scheme supports people across the Union.
