Furlough scheme Extended!
The furlough scheme has been extended to 31st October 2020 taking pressure off small businesses with employees still being entitled to 80% of their usual pay.
It has not however been made clear what amount of this 80% the employer will be able to reclaim. It is likely that from July onwards there will be a cost to the employer if they continue to furlough any employees.
