Yesterday, HMRC announced an exception to today’s (10 June) deadline date for furloughing. The exception applies to parents on statutory maternity and paternity leave returning to work in the coming months who will still be eligible to be furloughed even, after 10 June cut off date.

Such employees will only be able to be furloughed if they work for an employer who has previously furloughed employees.

Only limited details have been provided in HMRC’s announcement; more details will be published on 12 June 2020.
