Furlough scheme extended

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 a month. 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.
