Many of our clients in the Advertising & Marketing Sector have been asking questions about the government's new furloughing scheme, not least because the official communications are as clear as mud. So my employment law partners Lucy Lewis and Richard Moore, who are also both members of our Advertising & Marketing Sector Focus Group, have put together a very informative set of Frequently Asked Questions which should answer most of your initial queries. The House of Commons Library has placed our furlough guidance on its recommended list of further reading on the scheme, so it's a good place to start for readily digestible information.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Lucy or Richard if you need any advice.
