TOO MANY MISSING OUT ON FURLOUGH PAYMENTS
The Chancellor's announcement that those who could not work from home would be paid 80% of their wages during the lockdown period is welcome.
However, for those who changed jobs after 28th February 2020 there is no support which is deeply unfair.
The offered "solution", that those who changed jobs after 28th February cut-off period could be "re-employed" by their former employer, is simply not practical or workable. Therefore, I have formally written to the Chancellor urging him to do more to ensure that no one loses out on essential support simply because they changed jobs after 28th February. 👇
