Furlough Scheme extended until October

The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak has announced that the furlough scheme (Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme) will be extended.

The key points are:

  • The furlough scheme will be extended until October
  • No changes to the terms of the scheme up to the end of July
  • From August to October, businesses will be able to bring furloughed employees back part-time.  Further details should be provided by the end of May in this respect.
  • Workers will continue to receive the same level of support:  80% of salary up to £2,500 but eluded to the fact that this cost will be shared with employers.  Again, we await further details on this as well.
