Article preview: Employers who have placed members of staff on ‘furlough’ to cope with the coronavirus can now submit their claim for government support. The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme allows employers to claim up to 80% of wages for furloughed members of staff, up to a maximum of £2,500 a month. Furloughed staff cannot carry out any work for their employer during the agreed furlough period, although they can still take part in training activities.
