If you and your employer both agree, your employer might be able to keep you on the payroll if they’re unable to operate or have no work for you to do because of coronavirus (COVID-19). This is known as being ‘on furlough’.
You could get paid 80% of your wages, up to a monthly cap of £2,500.
If your salary is reduced as a result of these changes, you may be eligible for support through the welfare system, including Universal Credit.
