Your employer can use the government Coronavirus Job Retention scheme to pay you while you’re not working. This is known as being a ‘furloughed worker’.
Your employer might tell you you’re being furloughed if they can’t pay you or if there’s no work – for example, if your place of work has closed.
You can also ask to be furloughed. You might want to do this if you:
are ‘extremely vulnerable’ and following government guidance to stay at home for 12 weeks – known as ‘shielding’
live with someone who is ‘extremely vulnerable’
are looking after your children while their school is closed
are pregnant or have a health condition and you’re worried about coronavirus
stopped working for your employer after 28 February and they agree to rehire you
You’ll need to meet some criteria to be eligible for the scheme – these are to do with how your employer pays you.
If your employer applies to the scheme, you’ll be paid 80% of your normal pay up to a maximum of £2,500 a month. This will continue until the government ends the scheme or you return to work.
Your employer can claim money to pay you for any time you stopped working after 1 March 2020. This is called ‘backdating’ your pay.
