Pay for more than 6m UK workers now covered by furlough scheme

More than 6m UK workers are having part of their wages paid by the state through the newly established job retention scheme. 

HM Revenue & Customs on Monday said that by midnight on 3 May, 800,000 employers had applied to use the scheme, allowing them to put staff on furlough with the government covering 80 per cent of regular pay. 

The number of jobs covered by the scheme had reached 6.3m, HMRC said — a tally that could include some workers being double-counted because they had been furloughed from part-time jobs by more than one employer. 

Gattaca PLC (LON:GATC) provides recruitment solutions and support to employers in the engineering and technology sectors. With offices across four continents, their global presence gives them the ability to offer clients and candidates a localised service on an international scale.
