HM Revenue & Customs has updated its guidance on the furlough scheme to state that employers can furlough employees whose health has been affected by coronavirus or any other conditions, including if they are unable to work from home, or are working reduced hours, because they:

• Are clinically extremely vulnerable, or at the highest risk of severe illness from coronavirus and following public health guidance.

• Have caring responsibilities resulting from coronavirus, such as caring for children who are at home as a result of school and childcare facilities closing or caring for a vulnerable individual in their household.

For more advice on the Furlough scheme or Employment Law please contact Tom Evans on 0151 230 1217 or Elizabeth Judson on 0151 556 1125
