To experience this pay, a company must keep workers on payroll rather than let them go to cut bring ins, which allows them to access the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
The hopeful scheme will then cover them during the length of the lockdown.
To make the grade for this scheme, you should not undertake work for your employer while you are furloughed, according to gov.uk.
If you are currently on unsettled leave and self isolating, this should apply to you – as Laura Kearsley, fellow-dancer and solicitor specialising in employment law at East Midlands law firm Nelsons, legitimates.
She said: “The scheme is backdated to 1 March 2020 and employers are urged by the supervision to take back anyone they had already dismissed and convert them to this entrust instead.
“Likewise, with anyone who is on unpaid leave.”
