Rishi Sunak addresses furlough scheme returning if second wave hits as end date looms


    Until the end of October, furloughed workers across the UK will continue to receive 80 percent of their current salary, up to £2,500 per month.

    These employees can now return to work part-time, and from this month employers will be asked to pay a portion towards the salaries of furloughed staff.

    As of August, employers need to pay ER NICs and pension contributions for the hours the employee is on furlough, while the government will pay 80 percent of the wages up to the £2,500 per month cap for the hours the employee is on furlough.

    This will reduce to 70 percent in September and 60 percent in October, with employers required to fulfil the top up.
