Furlough scheme: You can be furloughed for childcare reasons or if children are off school

The stringent measures mean many may find themselves concerned about how they will be able to continue working while caring for their children amid the schools closures.

Can a person be furloughed for childcare or if children are off school?

The government extended the furlough scheme until April 30, 2021.

Under the furlough scheme, formally the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, an eligibleperson’s employer can claim 80 percent of your usual salary for hours not worked, up to a maximum of £2,500 per month.
