Can I be furloughed-new job probation period?

QueenZoopla · 01/11/2020 20:15

I've been in my job just over a month, I'm in a 6-month probationary period. During this period either side can terminate my contract with a week's notice. The job is admin, office based, no WFH option, with a clothing retailer. I'm really worried and confused!

I thought there was a set date back in September time whereby if you hadn’t been furloughed no new staff members could be. I don’t know 100% that I’ve remember that correctly or if that’s been changed now we are heading into a second lockdown.

You’re eligible but it’s important to realise that putting you on furlough still costs your employer money; they have to pay your pension and NI and you also accrue holiday which they will need to “top up” to your full rate of pay even if they make you take it on furlough. So unfortunately it’s not a given that they will furlough you rather than just terminate.
