COVID-19 LEGAL UPDATE: FURTHER EXTENSION OF THE FURLOUGH SCHEME
The furlough scheme currently in place, supporting workers who have temporarily lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic, will now be extended until the end of April 2021.
The scheme was initially scheduled to end on 31 March 2021, but the government announced an extension of one month in order to provide businesses and employees a degree of certainty into the new year. The additional month will continue at the current level, with the government covering 80% of wages until 30 April 2021.
