Illegality & Furlough
Tuesday April 7, 2020 | 2 min read
What are the possible implications if you’re on furlough and your employer asks you to work? We appreciate that employees are concerned as to whether they will still have jobs when the crisis resolves and businesses are doing all they can to survive. However our advice to employees is that they should stop working whilst on furlough leave. They should raise the issue with their employer and inform them that they are concerned that the arrangement is illegal and tell them that they are not going to work whilst on furlough.
