Furlough period extended until the end of June 2020
The Chancellor has today (17 April 2020) confirmed that the furlough scheme will now extend to the end of June 2020.
The scheme, announced last month as part of a package of measures to support business, was originally set to run from the 1st of March until the end of May. This has now been extended by one month in order to allow businesses to continue to support employees throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
